Bereavement

Continuing the Journey Together

The Bereavement Care Program is a way for the staff at Remita Health to continue the journey we started together, while caring for your loved one. Our concern for you and your family does not end when your loved one has passed.

As part of the Bereavement Care Program, the needs of your family will be re-evaluated by the same team of Remita Health health care professionals who were with you every step of the way. Over the next thirteen months following your loss, members of the Remita Health team will stay in contact, providing you and your family with information specifically designed for families facing grief and recovery.

Just remember, your team at Remita Health is always here to help. We often remind families, “If you need us, we’re just a phone call away.”

The Grieving Process

Everyone reacts to grief in their own unique way. Coping styles usually differ based on personality and relationships with the person who has passed away. At Remita Health, we believe the most important part of the grieving process is to take care of yourself, and be open to accepting the support of friends, family and other health professionals.

GRIEF IS A REACTION TO LOSS AND CAN AFFECT A PERSON EMOTIONALLY, PHYSICALLY AND SOCIALLY. DURING THE GRIEVING PROCESS, INDIVIDUALS MAY EXPERIENCE:

  • Changes in appetite
  • Physical symptoms/issues
  • Shock/numbness
  • Sleeping problems
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Anger
  • Guilt
  • Poor concentration
  • Forgetfulness
  • Physical and emotional exhaustion
  • Lack of sense of purpose
  • Withdrawal from others

Remita Health understands the emotional, physical, and social challenges of losing a loved one. We can help guide individuals and families through this period of loss with counseling support, and educational outreach.
