Mountain Valley Hospice recognizes the grieving (bereavement) process as a natural reaction to the loss of a loved one. We are committed to assisting people through this process. We do this by offering a variety of services to the families and caregivers of those who we have served; but also to the greater community, regardless of the circumstances of their loss. Grief counseling is offered free of charge.
An assessment is made to determine how individuals are coping and what services might help them through the grief process.
Staff is available to provide emotional and practical support individually throughout the grief process. Counseling is available by appointment. For an overview of grief counseling services call 518-725-4545 or 866-944-0108
