Grief Support Services

At Hospice Inland Empire, we understand the grief process and we know that healing takes time. We offer a variety of services designed to meet the unique needs of the bereaved in our community. Our experienced Bereavement Counselors are here to walk alongside you during this journey and provide support and education through:

  • Pre-Bereavement Counseling
  • Grief Support Groups
  • Telephone Counseling Sessions
  • Office Sessions

The loss of a loved one can present us with one of the most profound challenges we face in a lifetime. Grief is a necessary healing passage, and an emotional and physical transition for which we can never truly completely prepare. It is a process which is unique, personal and complex.

For all of the uncertainty, one thing holds true – people must experience their grief in their own way and in their own time. Our staff can play a significant role in helping you cope with your grieving process. With grief and loss information, education and support, the bereaved have been shown to be better able to work through their grief and make healthy adjustments to the changes in their lives.

Hospice supports those who survive the death of a loved one through the first thirteen months after the death. During this period, the bereavement staff contacts the bereaved by telephone and by supportive mailings. The intention of the service is to provide support and keep the bereaved informed about resources that may be helpful. Our goal is to help the bereaved through the normal range of feelings and concerns commonly experienced in adjusting to a significant loss.

Bereavement assistance is available at any time during the provision of hospice care and can be accessed through your hospice team, or by contacting the bereavement team: 909-527-4392.
