Hospice Services of St Joseph Health view grief as a normal process that can be accompanied by fear, loneliness and uncertainty. Our Grief Support Services are designed to provide emotional and social support and education to individuals through one-to-one counseling and support groups.

Our Grief Support Services are unique in that we provide grief support to both hospice family members and to anyone in the community, whether or not they have used our hospice services.

Grief services are supported by donations and fund raising efforts, and are offered in both English and Spanish, at no charge to the recipient, although any and all financial contributions are gratefully accepted.
