Grief Support

Most of us have loved and lost special people in our lives, and we understand that coping with grief is a challenging process.

If you are having difficulty dealing with the loss of a loved one, the staff members of Bereavement Services are the people you can call for help. They provide grief counseling to patients, their families, and the community through individual and group sessions.

Our bereavement counselors offer grief support in a number of ways. Grief counseling is offered to hospice family members up to one year after a patient’s death. Short-term individual counseling is available for people in the community who have experienced a death, even if it is not a hospice-related death. Community organizations and businesses can arrange for presentations on grief topics.Workplace programs are available that describe how grief affects employees and dealing with grief after an unexpected death.

Thoughts for the Grieving has basic information about the grieving process.
