Spiritual Services 

When your loved one is living with an end-stage disease, the emotional and spiritual concerns are equally as important as comfort and symptom control. The focus becomes living with the illness while valuing and making good use of the remaining time. It’s about living, loving and openly discussing feelings with trusted family members, friends and counselors. 

Many families who have experienced hospice care report that through spiritual services, they found a feeling of unity and strength in one of life’s toughest moments. Our goal is to provide your loved one with support to enjoy quality of life and dignity, in spite of illness.  

Our spiritual care counselors can help your loved one by:

  • Supporting reflection on meaning of life and life review
  • Helping to clarify core beliefs and values
  • Exploring hope and purpose
  • Discussing issues of forgiveness or doubt
  • Reading and discussing sacred scripture
  • Offering prayers, performing rituals or guiding meditations
  • Providing spiritual/sacred music
  • Contacting clergy of particular faiths

Bereavement Support

Peace of mind is for the entire family. In addition to supporting your loved one, we are here to support you. Grief is a normal, healthy response to loss and is a unique, personal experience that differs from person to person. Grief often sets in for families long before they choose hospice services, it can begin at the time of diagnosis. These feelings may remain long after a loved one has died. 

We recognize feelings of loss and grief can be overwhelming. That’s why we continue to support you, your family, caregivers and community members, by offering a comprehensive bereavement program.

As part of our comprehensive services, we provide bereavement support for 13 months after the death of your loved one. 

 

Under the direction of a qualified bereavement professional, we provide:

  • Information and education on death, grief and coping skills 
  • Open communication with your bereavement coordinator and other members of the hospice team by telephone, mailings or in-person visits 
  • Access and referral to supportive services such as bereavement support groups, individual counseling and community resources 
  • An annual memorial celebration to honor and pay tribute to loved ones 

We offer the guidance and encouragement you need to successfully navigate through your grief journey. Talking through your emotions and what you are experiencing is a positive step in the right direction.
