Grief and loss are something we all go through, but all go through differently. At Bridges Hospice, we want to support you and your loved ones in the best way we can. Bridges offers thirteen months of support through our Bereavement program to all families who have lost a loved one. This consists of occasional calls and informational mailings, but may also include support visits, referrals to support groups or counselors, and recommendations for self-care, as well as our memory bear program.
Following are links to resources that you may find helpful. Please call the office at 412-380-0711 if there is any other way we can be of support to you.
