Bereavement Hospice Volunteer

Save to Favorites

Avalon Hospice

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Bereavement care is one of the services that make hospice services unique and aims to enhance the patient’s/family’s dignity and quality of life. Medicare regulations require every hospice to include an organized bereavement program that provides services for at least twelve (12) months after the patient’s death. Kindred at Home and hospice affiliates provides bereavement support for thirteen (13) months after the patient has died. If a family member, friend or caregiver requires additional support beyond the thirteen months, our Bereavement Coordinators and team will work to provide the appropriate support and resources. A qualified Bereavement Coordinator provides oversight and supervision of the bereavement program. The Bereavement Hospice volunteer can help with sending letters to bereaved and calling Bereaved as well.
