Bereavement Care...

Hospice and Palliative Care of the Blue Ridge offers an After Care program that provides  opportunities to develop a better understanding of grief, learn coping skills, and share feelings with others who are experiencing loss.

It is not necessary to be a family member of a hospice patient to participate in the bereavement program. Anyone who has experienced loss is welcome to be part of this program. Bereavement services provided include:

  • Individual and family counseling before and after the patient's death
  • Family and caregiver support visits by specially trained staff and/or volunteers before and after a patient's death
  • Telephone support
  • Monthly informational mailings
  • Support groups
  • Memorial services 
  • Spiritual counseling
  • Staff in-service programs
  • Community educational resources

Coffee and Conversations  is a support group for anyone who has lost a loved one. The gathering will take place in a confidential, supportive environment. The group meets the first and third Tuesday of each month.
