Bereavement is referred to as the time of grief following the death of a loved one. Our Bereavement program consists of bereavement services available, at no cost, to assist and support family members and friends of our patients.
Our bereavement team is trained and qualified to provide life changing support during bereavement for a minimum of thirteen months and longer if needing or desired. As part of our community outreach, we offer our bereavement services to the community as well.
Grief is the normal and natural response to loss of any kind. It is also normal and natural to review a relationship that have ended because of death or changed as the result of illness. However, many of us do not have the support needed to be able to take actions which provide relief from the pain cause by the loss. Americare Hospice & Palliative Care provides that needed grief support.
At Americare Hospice & Palliative Care, we are aware of the emotional challenges and stressors having a loved one diagnosed with a life-limiting illness can cause. Since grief begins with the diagnosis of a life-limiting illness, Americare Hospice & Palliative Care also provides grief support to families and friends during the experience of a loved one living with a life-limiting illness.
