Bereavement & Grief Support
Home Health United – Hospice not only provides bereavement and spiritual support during the care of our patients, but for the patients’ loved ones for 13 months after death. Our Bereavement Coordinator supplies supportive materials, and is available for phone calls or visits if needed.
Grief continues well after loss occurs and each individual experiences it in unique ways. Many people find it helpful to talk with others going through a similar experience. To support you on your journey, Home Health United offers free grief support options to anyone in the community who has experienced loss, regardless of whether your loved one was a HHU patient or not.
