Grief Support for Hospice Patients and Families

You and your loved ones will probably go through a wide range of feelings. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, and each person will have his or her own way and timeline for grieving. VNA Home Health and Hospice offers patients and families grief support through bereavement counselors, non-denominational chaplains and bereavement support groups.

We Understand

We experience grief because of the deep love and connection we have to someone who has passed. The way each person deals with grief is unique. VNA counselors and chaplains will provide you with comfort and support on your journey.

Bereavement support for hospice patients and families

VNA Hospice’s counselors specialize in helping patients, families and caregivers continue to live well and fully as they cope with issues surrounding a life-limiting illness. Counselors bring comfort and encouragement, lighten psychological burdens and strengthen family communication. Counselors and chaplains are available for one-on-one sessions and will also lead public bereavement support groups.
