Each person handles death differently when it comes to the loss of a loved one. This is why we offer hospice care in New Mexico to help patients and their loved ones face end-of-life challenges. Our support programs enable individuals to deal with the stages of grief that come with the passing of their family members or close friends.
Ambercare Hospice offers grief support services to patients and their loved ones during the dying process and for a period of 13 months following the death of the patient. These services are confidential and provided at no charge to individuals or groups. Sessions can be held in the Ambercare office or at an individual’s home depending on that person’s comfort level. Ambercare’s staff is specially trained in end of life and grief issues and is committed to walking with patients and families through the end of life journey.
Support groups are offered several times a year. These groups are open not only to the survivors of Ambercare patients, but also to anyone who has lost a loved one, including members of the general community. In addition, Ambercare hosts several memorial services each year to honor patients who have passed away and provide a time of fellowship and closure for their loved ones.
There are always healthy ways to cope with loss. Our recovery support groups and programs are a way by which families can openly express their sentiments and cope with the sorrow after losing a precious loved one. Our goal is to provide a safe environment that you can turn to for hope and healing in a sensitive manner.
