Grief Support for Hospice Patients and Families
Hospice is unique because it offers emotional and spiritual support as part of its scope of care. Hospice doesn’t solely focus on providing care to the patient, but it extends its benefits for family members as well. Electing hospice means that patients and families have access to emotional and grief support throughout and after their hospice journey.
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 Hospice offers patients and families grief support through bereavement counselors, non-denominational chaplains and bereavement support groups.
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. Through one-on-one sessions, VNA counselors and chaplains will provide you with comfort and support on your journey. VNA Hospice 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.
