Adult Grief Counseling Services

Bereavement care is an integral part of hospice care that includes addressing grief reactions and providing ongoing support for the bereaved. The grieving process is unique, and there is no right or wrong way to grieve. The first year of grief can be the most difficult as the bereaved experiences the "year of firsts," such as birthdays and holidays without their loved one. Grief counseling can be an essential part of the bereavement journey and can help with the many feelings that surround the death of a loved one.

For the families of those in HPCIC's hospice care program, grief counseling services are offered for an entire year after the death of a loved one. In addition, ongoing grief and loss support groups are provided at no cost to anyone in the community, regardless of whether they have used HPCIC's services. To learn more or schedule an appointment, call 704-924-4335.
