For Our Hospice Families
We know that everyone connected to your loved one will be touched in some way by their illness. Though it’s a natural part of life, we know that losing a loved one can be very challenging and Hospice of Lenawee will be here for the family during hospice and after their loved one has passed. We follow the family for thirteen months, getting them through the “firsts.” The first birthday, the first Christmas, the first anniversary.
Our special bereavement programs can help those who need emotional support or just need a little extra help coping. We can also help family members understand each other’s feelings and help them share their thoughts, wishes, and concerns. Hospice of Lenawee supports those who have lost a loved one by helping them adjust, begin to heal, and ultimately regain the ability to reinvest in life and relationships. Comfort comes in many forms, from a shoulder to cry on, to an understanding ear, but always through the strength of a supportive team trained in bereavement care.
Our supports include any and all of the following:
- Home and office visits with a bereavement counselor
- Support for the entire family (adults, teens and children)
- Telephone Support
- Support Groups
- Educational Opportunities (seminars and workshops)
- Hospice Remembrance Services
- Family Camp
This depth of support is a part of every Lenawee Hospice plan of care, making our hospice services unique and is offered at no cost.
For Our Community
For over 30 years, Hospice of Lenawee has been a hospice “of our community, by our community and for our community.” Operating as a non-profit hospice, we believe that grief support needs to be available to all of our community members. And, because of generous gifts given by the community and a committed Board of Directors, we continue to offer, at no cost to the community, the same support services (with the exception of home visits) to our non-hospice families who have experienced the death of a loved one.
