Home is Where Hospice Helps
For every family we serve, bereavement is available with Abbey Hospice for a minimum of thirteen months after the death of a loved one. We are happy to be a listening ear, a warm hug, a shoulder to cry on, or just a quiet presence.
Our services include telephone contact, home visit, bereavement support (by appoinment), support groups, referral to community resources, informational mailings about the grieving process and self care, grief camps for children and teenagers, and semi-annual memorial service.
Grief Support Groups: Each of our support groups are open to the community and provide an opportunity to share one's experience of loss and grief and listen to others share in a safe, non-threatening situation. These groups are not religious, and there are no expectations, no agendas, and no charge.
Please contact Abbey for times and locations of these groups.
Book Clubs: Abbey Hospice, in conjunction with our public libraries, offers a book club. The books we read are all fiction and are designed as a grieving tool and as a great way to come together. Please contact Abbey if you would like to borrow a copy of any selection or would like a selection list.
