Hospice Bereavement Care
Our caring staff continues its support for families following the death of a loved one. Trained grief counselors will call or visit the family to help determine any needs they may have in adjusting to the death of their loved one.
Working with the family, special care is designed for each main caregiver in order to support them in the year following their loved one’s death.
Hospice volunteers make regular phone calls to family members to determine how the caregiver is doing and to offer support by phone. Our bereavement coordinator is always available to discuss any specific needs or assistance needed to provide appropriate bereavement care to the family.
Family and friends may attend a weekly grief support group that is free of charge and open to anyone in the community. Children who have had a loss by death in the last year are also welcome to attend our annual grief camp, Camp Dogwood, free of charge.
