Avow announces the Center for Grief and Bereavement for Adults including new EKR Library

Avow (based in Naples, Florida) announces the Center for Grief and Bereavement, a newly dedicated space with expanded services to help adults navigate the deeply personal and often complex adjustment to life after the loss of a loved one.

Located in its Lyon Center on the Avow campus at 1223 Whippoorwill Lane, Naples, the Center for Grief and Bereavement optimizes space formerly occupied by the Avow Kids program, which moved into nearby Aunt Janet’s House earlier this year. While adult bereavement services have been offered on the campus since 1992 and by Avow since its founding in 1983, the refreshed and expanded Center provides dedicated spaces for private and group meetings as well as a black-light lit meditation space where participants privately or with others can write or draw their feelings in colorful markers on acrylic panels. The Center also houses the new Elisabeth Kübler-Ross Memorial Library, which contains books and memorabilia on end-of-life topics and other subjects from Dr. Kübler-Ross’s personal collection. The items are available for the community to use onsite.
