Unexpected Loss and Unprepared Grief: Finding Hope in Hospice with Aly Bird

Unexpected Loss and Unprepared Grief: Finding Hope in Hospice with Aly Bird

We live in a culture that encourages us to numb discomfort and find quick solutions to our problems. However, grief defies these norms. It is a complex and ever-evolving experience that cannot simply be “gotten over.” When faced with an unexpected loss, we find ourselves unprepared for the tumultuous journey of grief and uncertain about its duration. In such times, seeking assistance and support from hospice becomes invaluable, as they can guide us in navigating and coping with grief in a healthy way.
