Resource Links

kidsaid
 
A safe place for kids to help each other deal with grief and loss. It's a place to deal with feelings in our e-mail support group, to share and view artwork and stories, and for parents and kids to ask  questions and find
answers.


 Hospice Net Bereavement
Hospice Net is also listed on our links page as a hospice care resource, but we list it here again because its section on bereavement is excellent.


Our journeys with loss and grief will break our heart, but with the support of compassionate caregivers we can find our way even through "the valley of deep darkness."

To provide the best possible care to bereaved patients, family members and friends, Journeys Hospice offers the following bereavement services:

  1. Assistance in making a full assessment of your bereavement resources and needs in collaboration with patients, family members and the interdisciplinary hospice team, initially upon admission to hospice, when significant changes occur in the patient's situation and again upon the patient's death.
  2. Bereavement support as indicated by your assessment, which may include:
    1. visits or phone calls by the bereavement coordinator or other team members for emotional or educational support
    2. providing educational and inspirational resources
    3. planning for services and final arrangements
    4. facilitating funerals, memorial services and celebrations of life for the family and/or caregivers
    5. referral to other appropriate services
  3. A thirteen-month follow-up after your loved one's death in accordance with your needs and wishes, which may include:
    1. periodic phone calls and/or mailings
    2. visits with family members and caregivers
    3. referral as needed and requested
