Arbor Hospice is the recent recipient of a $2,000 grant from the MAXIMUS Foundation, which will support Arbor Hospice’s extensive grief support services, including its pediatric grief program. All of Arbor Hospice’s grief support programs are offered free of charge to everyone in the community, whether or not a loved one has received care from Arbor Hospice.
“Arbor Hospice is grateful to be the recipient of a grant from the MAXIMUS Foundation,” said Heidi Grix, Executive Director of The Arbor Hospice Foundation. “Through the generosity of the MAXIMUS Foundation, corporate sponsors and individual donors, Arbor Hospice is able to ensure that every member of our community who seeks support following the loss of a loved one has the opportunity to receive it.”
Arbor Hospice provides an extensive range of grief support services for children and adults throughout its seven county service area. Bereavement support is offered in many ways, including one-on-one counseling, support groups, workshops and art therapy for children. These programs are customized by Arbor Hospice’s Masters-level clinicians to help individuals cope with their grief. Last year, Arbor Hospice provided grief support services to more than 5,500 people in the community.
