Surrounding you with support at a time of 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.
Hospice of the Panhandle’s Center for Grief Support provides grief support, free of charge, to anyone in Berkeley, Morgan, Jefferson or Hampshire counties who have experienced a loss. Programs and services also are available to support the family and caregivers of hospice patients before and after the death of a loved one.
