The inevitable response of patients and their families with the challenges of the phases of a terminal illness may begin well before the patient’s death. The cognitive and emotional acceptance of a terminal prognosis is a vital process. Loved ones may show unrealistic optimism, protest, or anger, along with the feeling of grief. The challenge of accepting the circumstances involves a complex process depending on a person’s existential views on life.
Our bereavement service at TRANQUILITY HOSPICE AND PALLIATIVE CARE provides the appropriate counseling or other specialist training that aims to help the families of hospice patients cope up with the situation. We offer a variety of programs and services to guide them along the whole process, which includes:
- Guidance while making funeral arrangements
- Attendance at memorial or funeral services to offer emotional support
- Individual sessions
- Support groups
- Monthly mailings
- School and workplace grief support and educational programs
