“When my father passed away, there was no one available to counsel my mother since we did not elect hospice care. Over the months, I found it very difficult for our family to deal with our loss.
The program that Seasons Hospice provides is that type of services we dearly needed. I wish we had known enough about hospice to elect this type of care. You will never know just how much these services are needed until you are faced with the loss of a family member or close friend. Seasons Hospice is here to help….let them.”
Recognizing the needs of those affected by life-threatening illness, Seasons Hospice provides ongoing bereavement follow-up to family members and friends of Seasons Hospice patients for 13 months following the patients’ death. Seasons Hospice also provides a bereavement support group to interested individuals in the community-at-large.
Seasons Hospice Bereavement Services Include:
- 13 month bereavement benefit for families.
- Appropriate bereavement literature is mailed out during the 13 month period.
◦ Time-limited, one-on-one grief and loss support visits are provided by the chaplain and/or social worker for Seasons Hospice survivors as needed.
- An annual memorial service for all family and friends who have lost loved ones.
Bereavement support groups at Seasons Hospice offer ongoing support and information about grief, loss, and life adjustments. The bereavement support groups are designed for surviving family members and friends of Seasons Hospice patients. Individuals from the community may also attend.
Facilitated by trained, experienced staff, the bereavement support groups provide an opportunity to share experiences, thoughts, and feelings with others who are in similar situations.
