The Hope and Healing Program is supported in part by The Jeffrey David Walerstein Foundation.
Grieving is a healthy and normal response to any loss. It is important to find support that can give you the strength to live a healthy and full life while you work through your grief.
United Hospice specializes in bereavement support. Our Hope & Healing Program is one of the only places where you will find specially trained counselors, clinical social workers and volunteers who have a unique expertise in all aspects of bereavement. Our bereavement support team can help you navigate the grieving process and accommodate to your new normal.

Individual Support Sessions are offered with a specially trained bereavement counselor who will work with you in a quiet, secure environment taking the greatest measures to always respect your privacy and your needs.
Bereavement Support Groups are offered for family members and friends who share a similar loss. We coordinate separate groups for those who have lost a parent or sibling, and groups for those who have lost a spouse.
The Healing Hearts Program offers support for families with children, ages 4-18, who have lost a loved one. Healing Hearts brings children and parents (or guardians) together for group activities, then breaks families into groups for age appropriate support. Bereavement support for children includes special activities such as art, play and music therapies. Parents (or guardians) receive the support they need as well as practical guidance to address the needs of their children. In the Spring of each year, the program holds a Memorial Rock Garden Dedication. There is no charge for Healing Hearts program.
Crisis Intervention/Customized Bereavement Program Our crisis intervention team will work with your school, business, congregation or community organization to develop a customized plan to meet your needs.
Because we’re all unique and everyone grieves differently, the UH Hope & Healing Program offers several choices to help you.
If you have lost a family member or friend under Hospice care, there is never a cost for any of our services.
UH’s Hope & Healing Center also offers bereavement services to anyone in our community who has experienced a loss. A nominal fee is charged for those who did not have a loved one on a hospice program.
