Grieving Process

How We Can Help


“No one should have to deal with grief alone.”

When someone dies, everyone in the family is affected. Hospice Savannah’s care extends beyond the treatment of physical symptoms to consider the emotional and social needs of patients and families.

Grief is a direct result of love. When someone we love dies, we feel many different things. Some of us feel sad, some of us feel numb. Many people feel guilt or anger. Grief is different for each person.

Through Full Circle, a Center for Education and Grief Support, we provide a team of qualified and experienced bereavement staff to deal with the emotional and psychological consequences of a loss. Not only do we offer a range of bereavement support for anyone whose relative or friend was cared for by Hospice Savannah, but we also support any adult, teen or child in our coverage area who is having difficulty dealing with loss.

Effingham County residents can access bereavement support in Rincon by calling counselor Barbara Moss at 912-629-1089.  Barbara holds office hours (by appointment) on Monday and Tuesday of each week in the United Way's Effingham Service Center, located at 711 Zitterour Drive in Rincon.

Our services are funded through generous donations from the community and are delivered free of charge.
