Hospice family care addresses the needs of the family during the patient’s illness. Bereavement support starts at the first contact with hospice and continues throughout the patient’s illness and for 13 months following the death of a loved one.
It is natural to feel grief after the loss of a loved one. Grief is an emotional experience, but it is also a physical, intellectual, social, and spiritual experience. This is all part of bereavement.

The bereavement staff of hospice programs are trained to handle grief issues. It is often important to hospice patients to know that their family and friends will be cared for in the emotional time just after death. Providing this support is always a part of the hospice plan of care, and makes hospice unique among health care providers.
