Bereavement support is offered for 13 months after the death of their loved one.
Heritage Hospice’s Bereavement Services are a fully integrated part of a full continuum of Hospice services.
Education and support are the keystones of Bereavement Care. It is often difficult for family and friends who have recently experienced the death of a loved one to understand the grieving process.
Grief is an emotionally intense journey, and it is also a very physical experience for most grieving persons. Even when the death is expected, grief may strike with the force of a physical blow, leaving those shaken emotionally and physically. Loss forever changes the world of the bereaved. It’s a new personal, social and spiritual environment. The Bereavement Care Program is open to anyone grieving the death of a loved one no matter when or where the death occurred.
Heritage Hospice offers on-going events that offer support and education to patients and families who are involved in hospice care or considering hospice care. Check our schedule of upcoming events. Please join us. We consider it a privilege to share this life-journey with you.
