We at Sutter Care at Home – Hospice are companions who provide emotional support. We all know that at the moment of the death of a loved one, the life we once knew ends. We aim to sit with you, staff and patients during your grieving process and provide comfort, compassion and care. We acknowledge your pain and offer solace, strength and hope, creating a sacred space to express yourself.
It has been said, “Some things in life cannot be fixed. They can only be carried.” We are here to help you carry this pain. Sometimes the pain is so immense that we lose the ability to find joy or happiness. Yet, in considering the meaning of life and the gifts that it offers, we can grieve with purpose, allowing the death to transform us. Our goal is to support your grief as productive rather than destructive.
We offer our services at no cost to you, staff or patients. We offer individual counseling sessions and group bereavement support. We also offer a journaling class. My hope is that you will fill your journal with a record of your own search for yourself, and in that space, you will discover meaning and growth. I sit beside you, hoping to offer comfort and ease your journey on the mourner’s path.
Sutter Care at Home – Hospice is able to offer these services in part through the generosity of others. Our phone number is (650) 685-2806.
May the memory of our loved ones be a blessing.
~Randi Wren, Bereavement Care Coordinator
