Support the Bereaved in Your Community
Over the years, working in hospice as Bereavement Coordinators, we have realized that many bereaved feel more comfortable connecting with those in their own community. Often there is no formalized support system to fill this need. This network program gathers those in your community who wish to provide service for the bereaved, and those who wish to access grief support.
We offer consultation services on how to develop a bereavement companion network in your organization. We provide training and grief educational resources for the volunteer coordinator and bereavement companions.
Consultation services include developing an individualized program:
Effective communication system, to include confidential support between the bereaved and the assigned companion.
Training of basic grief experiences.
Red flags for complicated grief that professional referrals are important
