Following the loss of a loved one can be a challenging experience and grieving is a process that is different for everyone.
For 13 months after the loss of a loved one, the bereavement counselors at Holy Redeemer Hospice continue to provide support for the family through support groups, mailings, counseling and one-on-one encouragement, all at no additional fee. Memorial services are held twice annually and provide family members with an opportunity for remembrance.
If continued care is needed after 13 months, the professional counselors at the Holy Redeemer Counseling Center, which also offers a Bereavement Support Group, can help the family cope with grief, which, for some, can be prolonged.
