Bereavement

Wilshire Center for Grief Education and Healing

Grief affects our lives on all levels and can takes its toll on us – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Well-intentioned as our family and friends may be, their support isn’t always enough. At such times we need to look elsewhere for help. Wilshire Hospice Center for Grief, Education and Healing offers this kind of assistance to our patients and their families

Grieving is a normal
but difficult time

Grieving is a normal

We offer grief assistance for the Hospice patient while he or she progresses through the last stage of life. Additionally, we provide help for the family during the Hospice experience (known as anticipatory grief work) and for at least thirteen months following the death of the Hospice patient.

All grief deserves attention
and understanding

Our Bereavement Team is here to provide family members with a safe, accepting environment for the expression of feelings and thoughts. Our staff is trained in grief counseling for adults, adolescents, and children. A comfortable room is designated for adult bereavement counseling sessions, and a special children’s bereavement room was built expressly for the distinct needs of the children and grandchildren of our patients. It is filled with tools such as art supplies, books, and puppets, that counselors use to aid youngsters in their grief work.
