HOSPICE COUNSELING FOR PATIENTS AND FAMILY MEMBERS IN COLUMBIA
Dealing with a loved one in hospice care can be emotionally difficult. At Rest Assured Hospice, we offer hospice counseling in Columbia. We realize that your loved one is an individual with a great story to tell. Coming to terms with the end of one’s life can be overwhelming for both the patient and family. To assist in the grieving process, we offer the following services for everyone involved:
- Bereavement Counseling – This helps patients and their families deal with the loss and the grief they are feeling.
- Social Work and Counseling – This allows us to assess the emotional needs that seem to arise when loved ones are dealing with a terminal illness. Crisis management and insurance assistance are available through a social worker.
- End-of-Life Spiritual Counseling – This is available by request for patients and family members who are seeking spiritual guidance. Spiritual counseling can help to put minds and hearts at ease.
The Importance of Grieving & Bereavement
Bereavement counseling is an important step during hospice care. Our therapists will walk you and your loved ones through acceptance, experiencing pain, adjusting to life the way it is now and moving on. In some cases, grief can become so bad it leads to suicidal thoughts and depression. If you or a loved one is feeling numbness, disorganization, insomnia, loss of appetite or weight loss, let our crisis management team get you the help you need. We also offer quarterly grieving support sessions.
