Grief Counseling and Support
Grief Counseling and Support in Central Georgia
Dealing with the loss of a loved one is difficult. Hospice Care Options understands that terminal illness and the death of a loved one present huge challenges in your life. We offer friends and families the support they need to help them work through this period of time. Hospice services do not end with the death of the patient. Bereavement support is offered to the surviving family members for 13 months following the death of a loved one. We have a group of caring and compassionate professionals who provide counseling and support for those who have lost loved ones.
Five Stages of Grief
There are five commonly known stages of grief; denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. While this layout may give some individuals comfort, these stages don’t always occur in order and may take years to work through. Grief varies from person to person, as well as the situation and the individual lost.
Staff time spent with patients and their loved ones is an essential component of hospice. This includes after a patient has passed away. Hospice is important not only for the patients we serve but for the grieving families we help guide through the process of loss.
