Bereavement Program

Bereavement services are an integral part of the hospice program. The social worker and spiritual counselor are available to assist families during this emotionally difficult time. Following a hospice patient’s death, hospice continues to provide bereavement support to grieving families.

These services are available for a period of at least 13 months following the patient’s death. They include regular mailings to provide support and education regarding grief issues, phone contact, and individual visits (as desired by the bereaved family) by the social worker or spiritual counselor.
