Bereavement Support for You and Your Family
When a loved one passes away, it can leave an unexplainable void in your heart. In the days ahead you may find that you are struggling to cope, understand and move forward. Grief is not something you get over; it is something you work to get through. The hospice team will work with you during this difficult time and provide bereavement services for 13 months after your loved one has passed away with Knute Nelson Hospice. We also encourage you to use the support and resources listed below.
