Grief Support

Excela Health Home Care & Hospice at Independence Health System has a team of Grief Support Counselors available to inform, support and guide patients and families through the grief process before, at the time of, and after the death of a loved one.

They also work to anticipate and respond to community education and supportive needs related to bereavement.

In Person Support

“Neighborhood Kids” is a family-based bereavement support program designed to bring families together during a time of loss and sadness, using alternative therapies such as art, music and pets to help children work through grief. 2024 dates and more information on the Neighborhood Kids program is coming soon!

For adults looking for support after the loss of a loved one, Bereavement Counselors invite you to share your stories with others who grieve. Click here to see the schedule for the in-person support groups.
