Bereavement Services

Grief is a natural and healthy response to loss, and affects us all at some point in our lives.

Each person reacts differently to grief, and it can be a very isolating experience. Jansen Hospice and Palliative Care is here to help you.

We have clinical social workers, specially trained counselors and volunteers who have experience dealing with all areas of bereavement. We offer individual counseling services as well as bereavement support groups.

Jansen Hospice and Palliative Care understand that everyone grieves differently. That is why we offer our families a variety of bereavement services for up to a period of 13 months following the death of their loved one.

Our bereavement services include:

  • Individual counseling sessions
  • Support groups
  • Phone calls
  • Condolence cards
  • Mailings after the first, third, sixth, ninth, and twelfth month
  • Closing letter after the twelfth month
  • Anniversary cards

Grief Support Schedules

We invite anyone who has lost a spouse or life partner to participate in our bereavement support group.

Bereavement programs specifically for children are provided through the Bereavement Center of Westchester.

Registration is required for groups. For further information or to register for a support group, please contact:

This place changed everything for my family. We struggled with caring for my mom at home for 5 years and when they arrived it was like angels singing... Our social worker - Jody and our RN Violeta - made my mom comfortable and cared not only for her, but for our family as if we were their own. They were kind, compassionate and knowledgeable. I HIGHLY recommend them!!!
