Hospice accepts referrals for bereavement regardless of whether or not their loved ones received hospice services.
Those who contact us regarding grief support will receive the mailings and have an opportunity to talk with the Bereavement Coordinator or a volunteer. Our program offers quarterly mailings for thirteen months and phone contacts 1- 4 times a year.
Hospice Bereavement Coordinators and Social Workers also respond to community emergencies. They are available to counsel those in grief when a community has experienced a significant loss that affects many people - most often when there have been tragic deaths within the community.
This is just one more significant way that hospice can make a difference.
High Peaks Hospice and Palliative Care has also held three Bereavement Conferences in the past 8 years. These conferences were open to the public and were presented by nationally recognized grief specialists. The purpose was to provide the coping skills to both the professional and lay people in our north country communities.
