Hospice of Chautauqua County's mission is to provide education and comfort care for the end stages of life, and this is exactly what they strive to achieve with a team of specialists that helps a person/family get through it all. People generally think that bereavement services are just there for the support of individuals who have had family members on Hospice. These services are for anyone who may have lost someone important to them, and might need/want extra support. Or people may think that bereavement is just offered to individuals who have had a loss of someone they love due to cancer. The fact is that bereavement services are there for anyone who needs the services due to any type of loss from a variety of illnesses. When an individual experiences a loss, they often tend to isolate themselves from everyone else. Individuals should realize that while going through this time of loss and grieving, they should surround themselves with others who will help them through this grieving process.
Hospice bereavement is a free service to any individual in the community who may need these services. Even if you think you are dealing well with the loss and grief of losing a loved one, it still is very helpful to speak with others who may be going through the same experience. The bereavement services offer support groups to anyone who is interested, along with weekly dinner groups, helpful meetings to get through the holidays, follow up telephone calls and other support services as well. This is for any age group that might be experiencing loss, and also is completely confidential. Remember, everyone adjusts and grieves a loss in different ways, and no one's grief is the same. Bereavement services are there to help people move forward and to adjust for the future. Bereavement services are typically available for a year after a loved one's death.
