Bereavement Services

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.

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.

Additional Resources

  • One-on-one visits with a bereavement counselor.
  • Annual Memorial Service ceremony for our staff and bereaved families to honor and remember loved ones

Bereavement SUPPORTS
Our bereavement coordinator can meet with you for in person counseling and suggest a group that best meets your individual needs.

Bereavement Support Groups

  • Spouse/Partner Loss
  • Adults Grieving the Loss of a Parent
  • Adults Grieving the Loss of an Adult Child (18+)
  • General Adult Loss

Our groups are open to all South Shore residents who have suffered a loss within the past year. (Not limited to families of NVNA and Hospice patients)
