Families can count on our hospice professionals for ongoing support and education. One such area of support is Bereavement Care. This is a vital element of our hospice services for families. Before, during, and after a loved one’s death, hospice bereavement services are an important support system that assists patients, families, and caregivers with their respective grief.
All Bereavement Support Groups REQUIRE REGISTRATION. Please contact Karen Gore firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
About Our Bereavement Services
Our Bereavement Program is coordinated by a licensed clinical social worker who provides the psychological, emotional and spiritual support needed during life’s difficult transition after a loved one’s passing. Families and caregivers are provided with a continuum of care through a supportive bereavement program that continues for 13 months after the loss of a loved one.
A telephone screening is necessary for enrollment for support groups. For your safety we are providing phone screenings phone/virtual groups and virtual/phone individual grief counseling sessions. While all of our NVNA SUPPORTS groups are unable to meet in person for safety right now, our team continues to support our community. Our bereavement support groups continue to “meet” virtually. In-Person Grief Counseling now offered via phone/Zoom or masked outdoors.
