Grief Is A Personal Journey
Grief is a natural response to loss of a loved-one. It is important to understand that there is no right way to grieve. Every person responds to loss differently yet there are common qualities that those experiencing grief may share.
Common reactions to grief include:
- Denial: An individual may not acknowledge the impact of the loss.
- Bargaining: A person may experience continuous thoughts about what could have been done to prevent the loss.
- Depression: This may occur if a person feels loneliness, emptiness, isolation, and self-pity.
- Anger: This reaction is commonly occurs when an individual feels helpless and powerless after a loved-one’s death.
Because it is a personal journey, Angelle’s Hospice & Palliative Care provides individualized grief support services for at least a year following the death of a patient we have cared for.
Angelle’s Hospice & Palliative Care bereavement services include:
- Remembrance Ceremonies
- Bereavement support telephone calls and visits
- Community resource referrals
Life After Grief
Grief and loss may be experienced before the death of a loved-one. Grief support allows people to adjust to life after loss. It is important that those experiencing grief take care of themselves and reach out for the support of friends and family. Our social worker and bereavement staff is available to provide grief support and guidance during this difficult time.
