Providence Hospice Bereavement Services

Grief is a natural response when a significant person in our life dies. Each of us experiences grief in our own unique way. Sometimes grief is accompanied by intense, painful emotions that may be confusing and that may cause distress. Over time, the intensity of these uncomfortable emotions does ease and soften. Providence Hospice offers bereavement support to individuals and families grieving the death of a loved one.

All of our services are offered free of charge and include:

  • Community care workshops and seminars
  • Grief support groups
  • Individual and family grief counseling - Bereavement social workers provide short-term individual and family counseling to children, teens and adults who are grieving the death of a loved one who died while receiving hospice care.
  • Telephone bereavement support and referrals - Bereavement social workers and specially-trained bereavement volunteers support grieving individuals over the telephone. Information about bereavement resources in the community as well as referrals to local grief counselors are also available.
