Hospice Can Help Patients and Family Members of All Ages

I recently attended a presentation regarding services available through my local hospice and was surprised to hear that they provide services to patients and families of children who are facing serious illness or death, including unexpected death. The program is called Stepping Stones and offers counseling, support groups, retreats and education. There is even a support group for grandparents who have lost a grandchild and are dealing with both their personal grief and the grief of their child.

Frankly, it was difficult to hear the stories of children dying or even trying to imagine how their families find the strength to cope with such a tragedy but I was relieved to hear that Hospice is available to help them all every step of the way. The Hospice employees went on to describe how family members assisted by the program have developed such a devotion to the program’s mission that they have become Stepping Stone volunteers.

It was especially comforting to hear about the services and support available to the siblings of children who are coping with the rigors of a serious illness or who pass away. It is easy to imagine the confusion they must feel and the relief that talking to trained counselors and siblings from other families who truly understand what they are going through can bring to them.

Fortunately, many people think of hospice in times of grief or suffering but the suffering can be compounded by not turning to hospice soon enough for help. You don’t have to suffer alone. Hospice is available, ready and willing to help so don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and contact them as soon as serious illness or death impacts any member of your family, no matter what age.
