Bereavement

Hospice & HomeCare of Reno County provides bereavement services to anyone experiencing grief over loss.  We provide holistic support for cognitive, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of grief through the season of loss.  Bereavement services begin with an initial assessment of survivor needs and continue for a minimum of 15 months following the death.  Our bereavement team is available 24/7 to offer comfort, a caring presence and helpful counsel before, during and after the loss.  We understand feelings commonly experienced in losing a loved one and are here to listen and encourage.
