Grief Counseling

When a loved one is seriously ill, you may feel lost and overwhelmed. You may even find yourself grieving the loss of your loved one before death occurs. Through one-on-one counseling, grief support groups, workshops and special events, our grief counseling program provides emotional support prior to or after a loss.

Grief Counseling and Resources

One-on-One Counseling – One-on-one counseling can help guide you through your own unique stages of grief. And therefore, it can lead you to a life that is different but still rich in meaning. Our team of counselors are master’s prepared in counseling. They are also recognized by the Association for Death Education and Counseling for competence in bereavement and end-of-life care. Counseling is available on a time-limited basis with no charge to those whose loved one is cared for by Gilchrist Hospice Care. However, a nominal fee is charged to members of the community at large. Contact a grief counselor if you are interested in one-on-one counseling.
