Grief Support

Caring for Clients and Families

Endless journey eases the pain of passing.

Bereavement Services

Grief has no boundaries, timelines or expectations.

Endless Journey identifies that grieving begins upon decline and diagnosis. Our clients and their families have had to adjust to many changes prior to contact with us. We recognize the many losses that they have endured, from loss of functioning, ability to drive, live alone, etc.  In addition, the news of a terminal illness sparks anticipatory grief.  Clients and families must adjust, sometimes all too quickly, to the idea that their journey is transitioning.

Grief Resources

Our bereavement team is prepared to offer support and resources upon admission. The pre-bereavement program will initiate services upon request and/or Social Work referral. The goal of these services is to assist in preparation for end of life, focusing on adjustment and acceptance.  Education will be offered through one on one interactions, coping workshops, and support groups. Services will be tailored to individual client and family needs, therefore the possibilities are endless.

As our clients complete their end of life transition, the bereavement team will offer emotional support to the family. The team takes pride in providing consistent one on one support that is unique for each family member.  Additional support groups and workshops will be available during this stage of the journey.

Endless Support

Medicare and Medicaid have approved a 13 month window for bereavement services, however Endless Journey Hospice understands that grief has no boundaries, timelines or expectations. For this reason, our bereavement support is endless. We intend to maintain relationships with families beyond the clients end of life in whatever capacity is appropriate. We encourage all families to utilize this service as they heal and their personal journey continues.

Losing someone you love is a pain that only those who have experienced it understand.  We can be sympathetic and offer heartfelt condolences.  We can hold someone’s hand as they cry and say things like “I understand” or “I know how you must be feeling”.  Trust me, until you have lived through a loss that changes your whole world it is not possible to comprehend the emotion.

It can be overwhelming, as if all hope is gone and our existence lacks purpose.  It can feel as though moving forward is impossible without them.

There is hope.  There is healing.  These come with love, time and support.  Our God has gifted us with all the love, time and support we need to make it through these moments.  His gift of unconditional love and the promises He has made offer us hope in these dark times.

We can only imagine the pain of loss for each person experiencing it.  We can only offer our love, time and support.  We have developed a bereavement program that will support you throughout your healing process and beyond.  We believe that there are no limits to the feelings of loss and that endless support should be available.

We have established a support group as the initial program, with many additions to come.  Please feel free to join us at any of our meetings, regardless of your relationship to us or the type of loss you are grieving.  We are here and will do all that we can to support your journey as you move forward.  A support group schedule will be in a separate post.

With a grateful and humble heart,

Amy
