The Impact of Grief on Healthcare Professionals:


Healthcare professionals can also experience grief when caring for dying patients. These healthcare professionals may experience more intense grief if the patient has been under their care for a long period of time. Bereavement support for healthcare professionals, especially hospice employees, is essential.

Interim HealthCare Hospice bereavement professionals serve as important advocates to promote attention and action related to grief and loss. Hospice bereavement programs focus on hospice patients’ and families’ grief and loss concerns, staff and volunteer grief and loss needs, and grief and loss needs in the community at large. In this way, hospice bereavement professionals serve as strong community advocates for promoting understanding of grief and attention to the needs of the community’s grieving population. Interim Hospice bereavement professionals can also advocate for education and research to further knowledge about grief and loss and identify the most effective interventions to facilitate healthy coping.

I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for your help with my Mom. She has grown very close to a couple of your care givers. Everyone is prompt and considerate of her needs. It’s comforting to know I have people who I can count on.
