Bereavement

Hospice of the Midwest recognizes the impact that losing a loved one has on families and caregivers. Our Bereavement Program is designed to give them the caring support they need both before the patient’s death and afterward.

Grief is a natural consequence of loss, and it’s normal for families and friends to grieve for loved ones who are experiencing a life-limiting illness. Since the grieving process has no timetable, our support is available to caregivers and families for a minimum of 13 months after the patient’s death, free of charge.

Hospice of the Midwest’s professional staff and volunteers offer a variety of services to help those going through the grieving process. We provide:

  • One-on-one counseling
  • Printed educational and consolation materials
  • Supportive phone calls
  • In-home support sessions
  • Support groups
  • Assistance with memorial services

At Hospice of the Midwest, we pride ourselves on our commitment to bereavement efforts. Our arms are open to all those experiencing grief so that they can benefit from our programs. Our bereavement services are available to all in our community, even if their loved one was not under our care.
