Join the conversation with other caregivers and get information from our home health care experts.
As part of comprehensive end-of-life care from VNSNY, we provide specialized services designed to help families cope with the loss of a loved one. Our bereavement counselors, social workers, and chaplains are available to help families and loved ones, including children, through this difficult time.
VNSNY's bereavement staff offers a thirteen-month program for the families and loved ones of patients, following the patient's death. These services include one-on-one counseling, support groups, grief and loss presentations, literature mailings, and an annual Interfaith Memorial Service. This program also serves those who experienced a non-hospice death (such as a sudden or traumatic loss) through bereavement support groups and seminars that educate about loss.

In this discussion, participants will have the opportunity to interact with panelists who have experienced the death of a father. In a safe, question and answer format, facilitated by professional grief counselors, participants will hear first-hand coping strategies as well as learn how to create meaning from such a significant loss. Participants from prior discussions have commented that having the opportunity to be with other grieving daughters and sons has been a source of great support and insight.
We invite you to join us in this special evening, and to share with each other, as we learn empowering ways in which we can further move through our grief.
