“Everyone’s grief is so different,” says Barb Lamperski, director of bereavement at Mt. Evans Home Health and Hospice.
When someone who has been receiving hospice care dies, Mt. Evans staff members automatically follow through with assistance to families, Lamperski says.
“We offer the grief support; we listen to the stories,” she says.
Although death is a natural part of life, dealing with the loss of a loved one is a heart-breaking experience that individuals cope with in different ways, Lamperski says.
