Hospice provide a one-year period of bereavement when family members and loved ones transition to a life without the loved one.
Bereavement is a time of grieving. Grief often begins before death and continues for a length of time after the death. There is no time table for grief; every individual grieves differently. Hospice provides emotional, psychosocial, and spiritual support to family members and caregivers to assist with issues related to grief, loss, and adjustment.
