Bereavement & Grief Care

Each person takes their own journey through grief and healing. We’ll be with you every step of the way.

Supporting You & Your Family Through Loss

At Interim HealthCare, we know that just as each relationship with a loved one is unique, so is the process of grieving their loss. Grief is part of the normal process of reacting to a loss, and it may manifest as a mental, physical, social, or emotional reaction. We’re here to help you give space to those feelings of anger, guilt, anxiety, sadness, and despair. We can provide support through physical challenges like sleeping problems, changes in appetite, or illness. 

Our Approach to Bereavement Care

Bereavement care, which includes anticipating grief and providing ongoing support for the bereaved, is an essential component of our hospice care and begins on day one of the process. Interim HealthCare hospice bereavement programs focus on:

  • Helping family members understand and move forward in the grief process by facilitating their expression of thoughts and feelings and helping them identify or develop and utilize healthy coping strategies
  • Helping families problem-solve around adjustment issues
  • Providing guidance about decision making
  • Addressing social and spiritual concerns
  • Assisting survivors to adapt to an environment without the deceased while experiencing a continued relationship with the deceased
  • Respecting the ethnicity and cultural background of families and caregivers

Here for You, Every Step of the Way

At Interim HealthCare, our focus is to stand beside your family during the bereavement period as your advocates, support system, and community. We’ll help focus on your family’s grief and loss concerns, as well as help educate them about the nature of grief, loss, and the most effective interventions to facilitate healthy coping. We’re here for you.
