Meet our Grief Counselors

Grief is a process, not an event. Adjusting to the loss of a loved one takes time. Hospice of NGMC offers grief support to friends and family for 13 months following the death of any of our patients. These services do not cost anything; they are considered part of hospice care. Our licensed counselors can provide brief individual counseling to members of our hospice families including adults and children.
