Grief Services

Grief services

Grief is a normal part of the emotional process of illness and loss. Whether it's a spouse, family member, other loved one or yourself, the most important thing to remember is that you're not alone in the grieving process. Community Health Network has a number of options for coping with the grief that comes with illness or death so you can get the help that's right for you and your family.

In-Touch Bereavement

Hospice care patients and their families often must deal with feelings of grief during a long illness and the process of home care. Community Home Health In-Touch programs offer six-week long and monthly grief support groups open to the public. The groups are open to any adult and are available to offer support, initial grief counseling and connections to further community resources. In-Touch bereavement and grief services >>
