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 Coordinator, trained staff, and volunteers, are there to walk with each family as they journey through grief to hope and healing.
Before Hardin County Hospice, I worked as a children services investigator for Hardin County, an early intervention coordinator for Hardin County, and currently a mental health counselor for adults. I will be going on eight years at Hardin County Hospice. Helping the patient and their family accept the situation with peace of mind and helping the family/friend find peace of mind after the death of a loved one is the most rewarding experience about my job. I enjoy reading, watching films, gardening, and traveling.
