Grief Support

Excela Health Home Care & Hospice 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.

“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. Click here for information on the 2023 Neighborhood Kids program.
