Grief Support

Grief Support



Arkansas Hospice is committed to helping families find hope and healing through the challenges that come at life’s end. This includes grief support, both prior to and following a death. Grief is experienced differently for each person. It is a process that takes time. It cannot be rushed, but it can be nurtured. The Arkansas Hospice team walks beside patients and families on this difficult journey. Chaplains and social workers address emotional and spiritual needs and assist in the transition from hospice care to bereavement services.

Bereavement services are provided to our hospice families and to those in the community. Bereavement specialists offer opportunities for hope and healing for up to 13 months with such activities as telephone calls, individual grief support, correspondence, grief and loss education, annual memorial services and healthy coping strategies. Special emphasis is given to children and adolescents and to the adults who care for them. Individuals who are adjusting to life following loss can participate in Transitions Grief Support Groups or have help with referrals to outside resources, when needed.

Please contact bereavement services to let us be a part of your journey of hope and healing.
