The Bereavement Center of Westchester

Mission statement: We believe that grief is a personal journey and that each person deserves the opportunity to grieve in a supportive, accepting environment. Our mission is to create a safe and caring environment where both adult and child receive the special attention and support needed to move through the pain of grief toward hope and healing.

Caregiver Access

Caregiver Access was created by Christine Sotmary, who is the first Professional Caregiver Advocate ever. After caring for her husband for 8 years during his early-onset Alzheimer's disease she realized how little support families get during tough times. For the last three years she has been creating programs all over Westchester, NY, designed to make the lives of Family Caregivers easier. Her dream is to one day train Professional Caregiver Advocates all over the country to help Family and Informal Caregivers link to programs and their communities.
