In collaboration with our Palliative Care Service, the Bereavement Service at Yale-New Haven Hospital provides care and support to families and friends following the loss of a loved one. Grief is a normal response to loss. Grief responses can be physical, emotional, and spiritual. Learning and understanding more about grief will help with healing.
A variety of services are offered to help with understanding grief and learning to live life without a loved one:
- 'Healing Grief' Seminars
- Bereavement support groups
- Short term grief counseling by telephone or office visit
- ‘Hope for the Holidays’
- Annual Memorial Service
- Information and referral service for bereavement resources
The Bereavement Service offers support at both our York Street and Saint Raphael campuses. For further information call Andrea Lucibello, LCSW, at (203) 415-8940.
