Family Bereavement Services
Family Bereavement Services is a division of Guardian Angel Hospice that provides support to children, teens, and families in the communities we serve. Our mission is to support and enhance the quality of life of our patient’s families after the death of their loved one, to raise awareness of and provide education surrounding grief and loss, and to compassionately provide tools for any family coping with a loss in their lives. We provide these services through several outlets which are outlines below.
For more information about our bereavement programs, call us at 800.338.4043 or email us at email@example.com.
Bereavement Counselor Follow Up
Follow up is available to the family for 13 months following the hospice patient’s death. Services included are phone calls, visits, mailings and newsletters with information to assist in the grief process. Perhaps reading our newsletters and mailings will be of benefit to you to learn coping skills and ways to remember your loved one. One to one visits with your bereavement counselor may assist you with your grief and offer healthy ways to continue the journey.

Adult Grief Support Groups
Losing a loved one is undeniably one of the hardest of life’s passages. To help you on your journey of healing, Guardian Angel Hospice offers support groups for grieving family members and friends. Your loved one does not need to have been on service with us for you to participate.
Support groups involve a casual format where attendees share their experiences and the adjustments they have had to make. Joining with others and learning about common responses to grief can help you to feel not so alone with the process.
We welcome all persons who are grieving. There is no charge to attend. Give us a call at 800.338.4043 to find out more and to learn the times and locations of our current support groups.

Camp Angel Grief Camps
When children and adolescents are faced with the death of a loved one, the support necessary to guide them through the journey is one that is different than that of an adult. Children and adolescents process situations and events much differently than adults. They may not realize that it is normal and natural to feel the way they do during the grief process. Grief may take longer to heal as their development and understanding of death changes as they grow.
Camp Angel is designed to assist children and adolescents with this process and provide them a meaningful, healing and enjoyable experience. Camp provides the opportunity to meet other campers, like themselves, who are learning about and understanding their grief. It’s nice to know you are not the only one.
Camp Angel also allows the campers to run, play, laugh, be themselves, and have a great time (which is also very normal in the grief process)! No matter what level of grief a camper is at, they are understood and accepted.
For more information about Camp Angel, visit our special events page or Guardian Angel Hospice Foundation on their website.
