Central Oregon Bereavement Support
Grief is a natural and complex reaction to the death of a loved one. Survivors struggle with emotional, physical, spiritual, social, and economic changes. Bereavement services are an essential component of our Hospice program. Our programs offer various healthy environments in which family members can feel safe and accepted while navigating through this difficult time.
Our bereavement programs and services are open to the entire Central Oregon community not just family members of our patients. Whether you are dealing with your own grief or looking for ways to help a friend, you are welcome to visit our Resource Library located in our office for books or tapes to help you better understand the grief journey.
