About

Bereavement care is an essential component of hospice care that includes anticipating grief reactions and providing ongoing support for the bereaved over a period of 13 months. While the terms are often used interchangeably, bereavement refers to the state of loss, and grief is the reaction to loss.

Sonata Hospice Volunteers serve as important advocates to promote attention and action related to grief and loss. Patient families may experience grief as a mental, physical, social or emotional reaction. Mental reactions can include anger, guilt, anxiety, sadness and despair. Physical reactions can include sleeping problems, changes in appetite, physical problems or illness. this is where our Bereavment volunteers can help with staying in contact and provide support.

Sonata Hospice bereavement programs focuse on:

  • Helping family members understand and move forward in the grief process by facilitating their expression of thoughts and feelings and helping them identify or develop and utilize healthy coping strategies
  • Helping families problem-solve around adjustment issues
  • Providing guidance about decision making
  • Addressing social and spiritual concerns
  • Assisting survivors to adapt to an environment without the deceased while experiencing a continued (transformed) relationship with the deceased.

Attention to and respect for the ethnicity and cultural background of the families and care givers that are served by Sonata Hospice is essential in the development and provision of appropriate bereavement care.

This is a great way to help those that are going through a hard time in life.
