Bereavement & Grief Support

We’re here to help patients and their loved ones cope with terminal illness and loss. No matter what the prognosis, our goal is to help everyone in our community embrace each day with the hope and expectation of tomorrow.

To provide much-needed hospice grief counseling and bereavement support when the time of passing has come, our experienced and compassionate team includes grief counselors and chaplains and extends to outside support groups and networks. We understand everyone experiences grief differently, and we work to help patients and families find emotional peace and comfort in their own way.

Through St. Joseph Hospice, our network partners with the Women’s New Life Center to provide bereavement services to families impacted by abortion. We educate families and individuals on options, allowing them to make truly empowered decisions with respect for life, from conception to natural death.
