Social workers will assess your needs on an individual basis and create a customized plan and determine what resources you need and would be eligible for. Your social worker would then work to secure those resources for you. There are a number of resources in our community that we have researched and can provide referrals to. Social workers provide counseling and support to the patients and families that are enrolled in our Hospice program and visit on a regular basis. Social workers will also assist with advance directives.
Bereavement educators keep in touch with families of our patients for up to 12 months or more as needed. We offer individual and group grief support. We also offer grief classes to the community that are free of charge. Please contact us for current class schedule.
"Growing Through Your Grief"
In a class format, we will cover topics such as learning about the process of grief, the stress you feel while grieving, how grief affects your relationships, the guilt and anger you may feel and how you heal and grow through the process.
To enhance the experience of our classes, we will be incorporating art activities.
Our chaplains are here to offer patients and families spiritual guidance in their times of need. They can offer love, compassion, and understanding when families need support. The chaplain wants to visit all patients and families, unless you prefer not to receive that service. They provide spiritual support and encouragement during difficult times. The chaplain works with your clergy, as well.
