Grieving is a process that requires much more time than our culture typically acknowledges or allows. Support during time of bereavement can help bring healing, renewal and hope for the future. Staff at Hospice House & Support Care maintain contact with bereaved families following the death of a loved one to offer comfort, support, referrals and services as needed.
Bereavement Support is open to all in the community regardless of their previous connection to Hospice House & Support Care.
There are no charges for services of Hospice House & Support Care of Williamsburg.
