Bereavement Volunteers

AseraCare Hospice’s mission is to share our passion for improving quality of life through innovative healthcare, one person, one family and one community at a time. We are dedicated to providing hospice services as a way to improve the lives of patients and their families as they transition throughout the post-acute care continuum

Bereavement Volunteers are volunteers who may run support groups, visit families after the death, call families at various intervals during the first year, or help with mailings.

Volunteers offer companionship and support for bereaved family members for thirteen months after the loss of a loved one. The volunteers work under the direction of professional bereavement staff and receive special training.

Duties may include assisting a support group facilitator, making calls to the families, serving refreshments, or helping with mailings to families.

Service areas include: Brookfield, Cudahy, Oak Creek, Fredonia, Grafton, Cedarburg, Pewaukee, Sussex, Watertown, Glendale, Milwaukee, Kenosha, Racine, Lake Geneva, Pleasant Prairie, St Francis and more.

Please call 262- 785-1356

All you can do is to show up for someone in crisis, which seems so inadequate. But then when you do, it can radically change everything. Your there-ness, your stepping into (their) line of vision, can be life giving, because often everyone else is in hiding - ... So you come to keep them company when it feels like the whole world is falling apart, and your being there says that just for this moment, this one tiny piece of the world is OK, or is at least better.
