Support for families and loved ones

After the loss of a loved one, those left behind often experience a variety of powerful feelings and emotions. These emotions can be overwhelming and isolating. 

For 13 months after one of our patients dies, our bereavement counselor provides bereavement services to their loved ones. These services include periodic “check-in” phone calls and monthly mailings about grief and strategies for coping. One-on-one counseling and grief education sessions are available if needed. We also encourage participation in one of our bereavement groups, which can be an important source of strength and support. 

**Due to COVID-19, we are currently offering only virtual group meetings**
