Hospice care doesn’t end with the needs of the patient. The passing of a loved one brings enormous changes, and everyone tends to grieve in their own way. Bereavement care is an essential part of the experience, helping to meet the needs of the entire family. Anticipating grief reactions and providing ongoing support for the bereaved is part of the services offered at Mesilla Valley Hospice.
A very important part of Mesilla Valley Hospice is the Bereavement and Grief Support we offer to you following the death of a loved one. We provide grief support and can teach grief coping skills to all family member including children, as well as to extended family and friends.
Grief Support Services are different from the Hospice visits that were provided to your loved one. All Grief Services and Grief Counseling sessions are scheduled by appointment.
