Grief & Healing

Grief is a journey, and many family members begin this process well before their loved one passes. Bereavement services can begin as early as admission and follow throughout the illness and after death, and is offered to the community at no charge. There is no right way to grieve, but Hospice of Central Ohio can help friends and family members cope with their feelings and learn to express themselves in a healthy, healing manner.
