Or just need a break? Trained volunteers from Hospice of the Panhandle can sit with your loved one at home for a couple of hours. So you can take time to run errands, tend to other matters, or just relax and recharge. Your loved one also may be able to stay at our Inpatient Facility if you need a break for a longer period of time.
The stress, anxiety and uncertainty of an illness can unleash a range of emotions – fear, anger, depression, guilt, grief and many other feelings. Matters of faith and spirituality also are often magnified during a serious or terminal illness. But you don’t have to face these challenges alone. Our expert social workers, counselors and chaplains are here to support you and your family.
Grief support helps you heal from loss
Every person reacts differently when losing a loved one. For some, it may be a time to be alone and reflect while others may seek the company of other people. Grief affects our whole being – physically, emotionally and spiritually. If grief becomes overwhelming and unmanageable for you, Hospice of the Panhandle’s experts will guide you through a grief process that’s best for you.
