Grief is a normal process of reacting to significant changes in one’s life. Bereavement involves learning how to live with the change caused by the loss of a loved one. Grief is a unique and individual experience and may cause changes to one’s physical, emotional, behavioral and spiritual well-being, all of which are normal reactions to loss. The grief process takes time and support.
The Hospice of East Texas is pleased to offer a variety of support programs designed to promote positive ways for healing. Bereavement support is provided to patients’ families for at least thirteen months after the death of a loved one. In addition, many of our programs are offered free of charge to anyone in the community who has suffered the loss of a loved one.
