Bereavement support is an integral aspect of hospice care to families and is offered for thirteen months following the death of a loved one. Bereavement support and education is extended to the community through support groups facilitated by licensed counselors with bereavement specialists. CCH has a library with books, publications and films available to the community and professionals. CCH Hospice professionals are available to businesses, schools and organizations coping with grief and loss. Hospice bereavement care focuses on helping individuals understand and move forward in the grief process by facilitating their expression of thoughts and feelings in addition to helping them identify or develop and utilize healthy personal coping strategies. Grief and loss needs in the community are addressed through an interdenominational Memorial Service offered each year. Bereavement support groups are available for children and families.

We believe that providing care for the "whole person" is an essential feature of hospice. The mind-body connection is a well-documented physical relationship that has been shown to benefit patients receiving complementary therapies. Benefits include reduced depression, anxiety and pain; lowered blood pressure and decreased heart rate; enhanced breathing capacity; increased comfort and increased quality of life. Complementary services are available to hospice families including caregivers and the patient. Services may include massage therapy, therapeutic healing touch; music therapy; aromatherapy, reflexology and Reiki.
