Grief is a universal life experience, yet the way we experience grief is unique to each person and each relationship.
- Grief is a natural and even healthy reaction to loss.
- Within each of us is the capacity to heal.
- The duration and intensity of grief is unique. There is no magic “finish line.”
- Caring and acceptance assist in the healing process.
The patient caregiver is the person that the terminally ill patient trusts and relies upon for their daily needs. This can be a daunting responsibility, leaving them feeling overwhelmed and alone.
The hospice team understands that grief is a natural process that can happen throughout the hospice journey and after the death of the hospice patient.
Serenity Hospice Care walks with patients and families from the hospice admission to thirteen months following the patient’s death. Assistance with practical matters, memorial services, support groups, phone calls, letters and handouts all help the remaining family to feel cared for during the various ups and downs of the grief journey.
“Grief only exists where love lived first.”
– Franchesca Cox
Let us take care of everything.
The word "hospice" was once used to describe a place of refuge for people on a difficult journey. Our excellent care and deep compassion for patients and families offer a place of comfort on the end-of-life journey. Recognizing that in hospice care, the main guardians are the family caregiver and the hospice team, care is most often provided in the home setting rather than in hospitals and hospice care facilities. The Serenity Hospice Care team will support the patient and family wherever they are.
