Northern Illinois Hospice’s Bereavement Program is designed for families and friends of our hospice patients and is a continued part of hospice care. Because your grief is unique to you and no single way of grieving applies to everyone, you may find comfort in knowing that help is available in a variety of ways. All of these are offered at no cost to you or your family. Click on the links to learn more.
Open to anyone who has experienced the death of someone close to them, our support groups focus on learning, healing and encouragement. Conversation topics include understanding grief and mourning, myths about grief, the importance of community, available resources, helping others to heal ourselves and self-care.
