Hospice & Palliative Care
Bereavement support is offered to Gaston Hospice families for thirteen months following the death of a loved one in our care. Our bereavement counselors reach out to family members in several ways with support and reassurance, based on their requests for services.
These services may include:
Home visits are provided for family members within the first month after the death and ongoing as needed up to 13 months.
Individual Counseling is provided for family members who desire a one-on-one experience for therapeutic support.
Grief Classes and Support Groups give families the chance to share their experiences and explore grief with others in a similar situation within a small and confidential setting.
Phone Calls provide families with the chance to share their thoughts. You are encouraged to call us as desired.
Mailings are sent on a periodic basis, including material about the grief experience and suggestions for coping. This information keeps you up to date on groups, classes and special events held throughout the year.
Community Support through grief counseling is also available for those in our community not affiliated with Gaston Hospice and are offered through our New Hope Counseling Center for Grief and Loss. These services are available to support those coping with a life-threatening illness, or family member or friend supporting loved one facing a life-threatening illness, or those grieving the loss of a loved one to any cause of death. Please call our main office at 704.861.8405 and ask for a bereavement counselor for more information.
