Grief Support

Bereavement care is offered to the patient and family members. Grief support services include support in dealing with loss and grief, counseling and referral to other community services. Family members may be referred to and/or select bereavement support from other community agencies.

Aspirus also offers select bereavement services to the general community in some locations. These services focus on normal grief reactions and are not designed to meet the individual needs of a specific bereaved person.
