Bereavement Support Program

Our Bereavement Support Group offers a safe and nurturing environment for individuals to share their experiences, emotions, and memories. Facilitated by experienced counselors, these group sessions provide participants with the opportunity to connect with others who are also grieving and to receive support from those who understand their journey firsthand.

Phone Calls

Our dedicated spiritual counselor reaches out to patient families to extend our support services. Upon acceptance, our counselor arranges scheduled calls or visits to provide personalized assistance and guidance throughout the grieving process.


In addition to phone outreach, our spiritual counselor sends heartfelt condolence cards and letters to express our sympathy and support. These communications also include valuable resources and coping strategies to assist families in navigating their grief journey.

In the words of Earl Grollman, “Grief is not a disorder, a disease, or a sign of weakness. It is an emotional, physical, and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love. The only cure for grief is to grieve.” At Divine Hospice and Palliative Care, we are committed to providing compassionate support to individuals and families as they navigate the complex terrain of grief. You are not alone on this journey; we are here to walk alongside you, offering comfort, understanding, and healing every step of the way.
