Bereavement Program

The Bereavement Team at Good Samaritan Hospice would like the families, caregivers and friends of our patients to know that we are here to help support you as you grieve. Our program provides connection and service for up to 13 months after the death of your loved one. Grief can be an experience that feels very lonely, but with our assistance it is a journey that you do not have to walk alone.

Our program includes the follow services:

• Mailings related to grief and loss
• Phone calls from the bereavement team
• Grief groups – different locations in the communities that we serve throughout the year
• Supportive visits from the Bereavement Coordinator
• Referral information for counseling and support services in the community
Youth Bereavement Care - Bereavement Services, from birth - 21 years of age
• Butterfly Release celebration of life (takes place in August)
• Workshops
• Memorial Services (take place in the spring)
