Bereavement Services & Groups

Our bereavement counselors provide empathetic, sensitive support service for families and friends during their time of grief.  We continue to offer services at no charge to families even after death occurs.

These services include:
• Support in person and by phone
• Supportive visits by bereavement volunteers
• Literature related to grief mailed to the home of the grieving
• Grief groups
• Lending library offering grief literature
• Annual memorial service
These services are available to all members of the community whether the loved one was a hospice patient or not.
