Grief Support


Grief Services

When death occurs, children, adolescents, and adults are often overwhelmed by the wide range of reactions to loss. The pain is deep, and each person’s grieving process is unique, so Wings of Hope offers a wide range of bereavement and grief counseling services.

Family Grief Support

Family Grief Support is a Wings of Hope program of intensive support to families of hospice patients during the 13-month period following the death of their loved one. Individual sessions, group activities (as listed below), and periodic mailings provide an extra measure of support. If a grieving person wishes to continue grief work following the 13-month service period, grief support remains available indefinitely.
