In the last days or hours of life, family members face a lot of tough decisions that they must consider while grappling with their own emotions. Having a supportive professional available to talk through end of life planning decisions and help answer questions can ease these burdens. Time spent with social workers and grief counselors also helps family members to discover their own coping skills and move past this moment in life in a more positive way.

After a patient has passed, families continue to benefit from grief counseling services. This important care provides comfort and reassurance as well as opportunities for reminiscing and healing. The Salus hospice team in Utah offers grief counseling services to every family member, and our compassionate social workers are a primary reason why many patients choose us for their care.
