The Counseling and Support team includes highly trained professionals dedicated to providing the support you need. Whether you are newly diagnosed or are already part of our Gilchrist family, our grief counselors, volunteers, child life specialist and Palliative Care team are here to help.
Your team consists of:
Our master’s trained grief counselors offer support before and after a loss. Also, they provide one-on-one counseling, support groups and events.
Our volunteers provide a variety of services, including companionship, respite for caregivers or errands.
Also, our end-of-life doulas are specially trained to sit bedside with your family in the hours preceding death. They ensure you have the support you need and that no one dies alone.
Our child life specialist is uniquely attuned to the individual social and emotional needs of children. Therefore, they will work to help them sort out their feelings, most often through play and imagination. The child life specialist also works with siblings and other young family members impacted by a child’s illness and impending death.
