One of the important services of Hospice of the Ozarks is the wide range of bereavement and grief support services to not only the families of the hospice patient, but also to anyone in north central Arkansas coping with the death and loss of someone important. These services are provided at no cost.
Bereavement support to each family of the hospice patient is offered at a minimum of 13 months after the death of their loved one.
The support consists of:
• Phone Calls
• Individual Contact
• Care Notes Mailings
• Support Groups
Bereavement Support Groups - "Growing Through Grief"
For more information, call 870-508-1771 - Charlotte Repp, LSW, MCJ
• Grief individualized counseling
• Memorial Celebration of Life Luncheon - August 2019
• Surviving the Holidays Workshop - November 2019
Literature, and books are provided in a timely manner in correspondence with the time frame of the loss, and companionship.
One of the unique services we offer is the fact all of these services are also available to anyone in the community living with grief at no cost to them. Not everyone dies with hospice care support. For example, there can be a sudden tragedy, suicide, homicide or accident. For us, it’s not about what brought you to the moment of grief, but rather, that you receive the support and companionship during the course of your journey and is the core of our mission.
We have qualified and experienced bereavement personnel to journey with you as you make your way through this wilderness of grief and loss.
