Grief & Spiritual Support
Grief is a natural process. OSF Hospice's pastoral care and bereavement services offer patients and their families' companionship and true understanding of their experience.
Professional grief counselors help assist people to recognize and express the many manifestations of grief: physical reactions, mental chaos, emotional turmoil, social reactions and spiritual concerns.
Individual grief counseling and/or support groups can nurture courage and strength. Bereavement services are offered to family members for 13 months.
Our pastoral care coordinators visit with patients and their families' in the home, nursing home or hospital and can serve as a pastor for your family while under hospice care.
They can also contact your local church to request a visit from your pastor if you prefer.
