Grief Support



“Knowledge is power and it helped us to understand what to expect and understand the process as it was happening,” explains the family of the late Eugene Lang, Grinnell.

“The hospice team’s experience with the end of life process assisted in preparing our family with realistic expectations. The material was beneficial in educating us, especially as dad entered the final stages of life.

One important concern was dad’s pain management. The hospice team made pain
management a priority. They always asked him what his pain level was and if they needed to
adjust it.

They provided so much, even with dad in GRMC’s palliative care room. We felt it was
important to have a family member stay with dad 24/7. The hospice team and nursing staff at GRMC went out of their way to accommodate both dad and our family during these final days.

Anything dad wanted was at his disposal. What a nice touch for his final days!”
