Continued support and care.

Grief is different for everyone. We find solace and comfort in unique and changing ways. Through this aching time of loss, Village Hospice offers emotional, sustaining support. Our dedicated Bereavement Coordinator becomes involved with the patient and family immediately, building relationships that continue to support spouses, children and families for a full 13 months after they experience loss. Whether spending time one-on-one with personal counseling or sharing in a scheduled support group, our Coordinator offers assistance when it’s needed most.To strengthen our support, Village Hospice is home to incredibly caring and carefully trained bereavement volunteers who lend a listening ear through personal visits and phone calls.

Grief support is provided through:

  • Personal visits, phone calls and letters of care
  • One-on-one and group counseling
  • Support groups
  • Grief support workshops
  • Valuable resources and written information on topics related to the grieving process
  • Annual Memorial Service and Butterfly Release, a time to remember, reconnect and honor loved ones
  • Seasonal and holiday programs focusing on issues that surround those special, sometimes difficult times of year, such as coping with the holidays
