Bereavement Care

We provide opportunities to learn about grief as a healing process, connection with other bereaved persons, and an understanding and supportive space in which to share and express one’s grief. Individual support is offered through in-person visits, telephone outreach and mailings. A variety of programming is offered to address the needs and concerns of the newly bereaved and relationship-specific grief support groups are regularly held. No prior connection to the hospice is required.
