Following the loss of a loved one, our worlds change. Every death creates its own challenges, unique to each survivor. Each of us deals with grief and loss differently, and there is no one right way to grieve.
Losing a loved one can have a profound effect that requires a period of mourning, adjustment and extra support. The task of grieving is hard work. Be good to yourself, and give yourself time to grieve. The amount of time needed is different for every person.
The bereavement team at Middlesex Health Hospice is here to provide you with a variety of ways to help you on this journey of grieving. We offer:
- Bereavement follow-up for 13 months after the death of your loved one
- Bereavement Support Group
- Short term grief counseling by telephone or office visit
- Educational opportunities throughout the year
- Annual Service of Remembrance
Many of our bereavement services, such as follow-up and our support group, are currently taking place online. We are taking this step to keep our patients, families, staff and community as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Regardless, our staff is here to assist you during your time of transition and grief. Please feel free to contact our Hospice Bereavement Department at 860-358-6091.
