Community Grief Services

 

Hope Hospice Grief Support is available to serve individuals of all ages as well as families.

 

Grief Counseling

Our counselors are experienced in working with grieving adults, children and families. We will meet with you in person to discuss your own grief experience and create a plan that will best meet your needs.

If your loved one was served by Hope Hospice, there is no fee for counseling. For community clients seeking counseling, we offer a sliding fee scale based upon your current financial situation and need. Fees are decided and agreed upon during the intake interview and may be adjusted whenever there is a significant change in income or financial status. There is no fee for intake interviews.

Telephone Calls

Our counseling team is available to speak with you over the phone if you have a question or special concern. For more in-depth assistance, we recommend you take the first step in your healing journey by calling (830) 358-5300 to schedule an initial visit.

Support Groups

It is important to recognize that you are not alone and support is available. Groups help you meet others who have had experiences similar to yours and learn important coping skills. There are no support groups available at this time due to COVID-19 restrictions.  Please call 830-358-5300 with any questions.

Special Events

We offer emotional support and education year-round. These events include Help Through the Holidays, Potluck Socials, children’s grief services, camps and memorial services.

For the Families of Our Patients

Our patients and their families also have access to anticipatory grief counseling, periodic follow-up phone calls, letters sent to the home which provide education on the grief process and an opportunity to participate in the Annual Memorial Quilt.
