Part of our mission is to support grieving individuals through the death of a loved one, as it can be one of the most stressful life events a person can experience—whether the death is expected or not. Hospice of the Red River Valley offers a robust bereavement program—not only to family members of the individuals we care for—but also for community members. Our grief program is a community resource available to anyone who has experienced a loss through death, whether they had hospice services or not. We provide services to families, individuals, schools, churches and workplaces. Our services are offered free of charge to adults, youth and families coping with the death of a loved one of any age. If a loved one died while under the care of Hospice of the Red River Valley, individuals can receive bereavement services, free of charge, for up to 13 months following a death.
Our grief department includes professionally trained, compassionate grief specialists who provide support groups, end-of-life education, presentations and one-one-one meetings. They also offer literature, resources and referrals, as need, to help people cope with grief and work toward healing.
We welcome the opportunity to help guide individuals on their journey from grief to hope. If have a client who is in need of grief support, please contact us for more information about how we can help.
