Hospice believes that the process of grieving begins with the diagnosis of a serious illness. If one is permitted to grieve openly and honestly, this grief process can transform into a healing which will enhance the quality of life the individual and family can share together.
To provide guidance and support, a trained counselor is available for each patient and family seeking help. In addition, bereavement support is continued for at least 13 months following the death of a loved one. Through phone calls, visits, educational material, and support groups, the Hospice Bereavement/Chaplain Coordinator, trained staff, and volunteers, are there to walk with each family as they journey through grief to hope and healing.
