Hospice of Dickinson County offers bereavement services to hospice patients’ families and the community. Below are services we offer and tools to help you through your grief. Everyone’s grief process is different. We’re here to help you through the healing process. You are not alone.
Home Health and Hospice of Dickinson County periodically offers Bereavement Groups in Abilene and Herington for those coping with a loss. A loss may include the death of a loved one, a miscarriage, a home, a person’s livelihood, etc.
Group members will learn about the grief process and develop skills to cope with the effects of loss. Time is allowed for sharing personal experiences. Bereavement groups are facilitated by a bereavement counselor. Persons interested are encouraged to bring a supportive partner.
The sessions are free; however, a donation to cover the cost of materials would be gratefully accepted. Groups are open to the public. Pre-registration is not required. Please call (785) 263-6630 to learn when the next Bereavement Group will be offered.
Our “Grief Journeys” pamphlets are educational tools for those experiencing grief after the loss of a loved one. We mail these to family members following the death of a Hospice patient, but we also make them available online to anyone who is grieving. It is best to read these pamphlets for the age and time specified. We hope these will be helpful to you. The pamphlets are available in PDF format and you may feel free to print them. Please call (785) 263-6630 if you prefer to have Grief Journeys mailed to you.
