How We Do It
Lumara’s community model of care embraces a holistic approach to bereavement care where emphasis is placed on healing both within and between families. Through our programs/services, we aim to foster a community of belonging that provides grieving families with memorable and positive experiences of connection, healing and hope.
Our programs are delivered through applying evidence-based methods and holistic therapies that recognize bereavement as an ongoing process rather than a series of predetermined emotional stages that people move through in a predictable and orderly fashion. Our Model identifies individuals and families through an ecological framework. We recognize that each person is unique, that they themselves change over time, as do their family systems and mechanisms of support.
