Hospice Bereavement Program

Comfort, Compassion & Support for Families

We understand that the loss of a loved one is a life-changing experience and grief is part of that process. While compassionate support from our Bereavement Team is available to you at all times, additional services will be provided to you after the loss of your loved one.

Within the first month following the death of your loved one, you will receive:

  • A phone call from a member of the bereavement team
  • A personalized note from the bereavement team
  • The first of six "Hope Through Healing" mailings

Throughout the first year following the death of your loved one, you will also receive:

  • Periodic phone calls from the bereavement team (as needed)
  • Continued “Hope Through Healing” mailings
  • An invitation to our annual Hospice Memorial Service, where the life and memory of your loved one will be honored
  • Information on community support groups and other resources

The process of grieving is a unique journey for each individual. For additional support, please contact us at 1-800-304-7837 or 414-874-6170.
