Allegiance Hospice understands that grief is a natural, normal response to loss. It is not a mental illness. Because each person experiences grief differently, we offer a variety of services and tools to help you on your journey. All Allegiance Hospice bereavement services focus on emotional and social support that works in harmony with your own support system, which may include family members, friends and community.
After the death of a loved one in hospice care, an Allegiance Hospice professional contacts each family member to find out how we can best be of help. We ask questions to understand your loss, your relationship with the person who died, the strengths of your family support system, your style of coping with grief and any additional causes of stress. This is called a professional psychosocial assessment and participation is voluntary.
We are Here to Help
The staff of Allegiance Hospice is here to help you and your family through your loss. Please feel free to contact us with questions about counseling services, support groups, resources and events at (517) 841-6982, ext. 3569.
Support is a very important part of the healthy reconciliation of grief issues. Family members and friends can be very supportive, but sometimes it helps to share your experience with others who are dealing with loss. Sharing and discussion in a group setting can be a positive and rewarding experience, and Allegiance Hospice offers a variety of support group choices for adults, teens and children.
All Allegiance Hospice grief support events are free of charge and open to the public. Our support groups are designed to address the emotional, educational and social needs of those who are coping with a death. We also encourage support group members to take care of themselves through the grief process by maintaining regular healthcare practices and seeking physical, emotional and spiritual care as needed.
