Bereavement Services

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.

  • “Do not stand at my grave and weep; I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow; I am a diamond's glint on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain; I am the gentle autumn's rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds circled in flight. I am the soft star that shines at night.  Do not stand at my grave and cry.  I am not there. I did not die."  Mary Elizabeth Frye
