Grief Support

Hospice programs are called, not only to serve the individual experiencing a life-limiting illness but also his or her family and the community. Our bereavement programs are aimed at helping people move toward a healthy adjustment to the many changes in their lives after a death in the family.

Family Support
Catholic Hospice has a personal, caring bereavement team of professionals that serve families during and following the death of a loved one receiving hospice care. The service continues through at least the one-year anniversary date of the death. In addition, Catholic Hospice provides annual Memorial Services for remembrance of a loved one.

Bereavement Support Groups
Catholic Hospice provides on-going bereavement support groups throughout the Miami-Dade Community, which are facilitated by experienced counselors. The support groups are free and open to the community.

Grief in the Workplace /Crisis intervention Program:
