Center for Grief, Education & Healing

Wilshire Hospice is here to help.
Grief can affect our lives on all levels and can take its toll on us physically, emotionally and spiritually. Well-intentioned as our family and friends may be, their support may not be enough. At such times we need to look elsewhere for help. Wilshire Hospice Center for Grief, Education and Healing is able to offer such assistance to our patients and their families.

Grieving is a normal but difficult time.
We offer grief assistance for the Hospice patient while he/she progresses through the last stage of life. Additionally, we provide help for the family during the Hospice experience (called anticipatory grief work) and for at least thirteen months following the death of the Hospice patient.

All grief deserves attention and understanding.
Our Bereavement Team is here to provide family members with a safe, accepting environment for the expression of feelings and thoughts. The staff is expert in grief counseling for adults, adolescents and children. A comfortable room is designated for adult bereavement counseling sessions, and a special children's bereavement room was built expressly for the distinct needs of the children and grandchildren of our patients. It is filled with tools (art supplies, books, puppets, etc.) that counselors use to aid youngsters in their grief work.

Individual and/or family bereavement counseling is available. Visits may take place in our office or the home, by appointment.
