Who We Are

  • "Our family would like to thank everyone involved in my husband's care. You helped us to fulfill his final wish and make his final journey from home. You are all amazing and special; you took great care of him as well as his family."

  • "Your caring staff is so valuable to families during critical times. Your support is very comforting and appreciated. We are truly grateful."

  • "We were blessed with the loving care you gave our Dad. The nurse was great and treated him like he was part of her family. We are forever grateful for all of you. Thank you."

  • "To the Hospice folks, words cannot express our thanks and appreciation for your tender touch and loving professionalism during our Dad's illness. We will always remember our nurse's expert skills and abilities as well as her personal touch. "

  • "We want to thank everyone who cared for our Mother. Everyone was so nice and caring and went over and beyond what we could have hoped for. Thank you all."

The CareFirst Grief Services team is here to assist you before, during, and after a loss. We provide grief services for patients, families, and loved ones, as well as for the community as a whole. CareFirst Grief Services staff and volunteers are specially trained in grief and loss needs, inclusive of all types of loss and all age ranges.

Our staff is comprised of caring professionals who understand the unique needs associated with grief. We tailor our services individually to meet unique needs. The services provided offer support and guidance to help individuals adjust to loss and regain hope and purpose in their lives.

In addition to traditional counseling and support groups, our Grief Services team is honored to offer a range of workshops and events to meet your grief needs. These are open to the public, even if your loved one was not on hospice. For more information, call 607.962.3100 or email  Take a look at our Fall 2017 grief events
