Free counseling through a local hospice brings in people who have lost loved ones.

(WECT) -

Lower Cape Fear Hospice has one goal, and that is to serve everyone who has been touched by a life limiting illness.

One way they do this is through free counseling programs for people who are enrolled in the hospice center, or even those in the community who need a shoulder to lean on.

 “We offer free bereavement services for all of our hospice families for up to 13 months after a patient passes away.” said Chris Scott, adding “we also offer free community bereavement for up to 3 sessions, but after that we ask for a donation to help them with their grief issues.”

The hospice not only offers one on one counseling for free, but also through grief groups that connect people who are going through similar situations.

In fact, Lorraine Perry, a counselor for both children and families said “we have clay, painting, drawing, literature, music, and one on one counseling”

Lower Cape Fear Hospice isn’t just in one county, as a matter of fact- they serve 7 counties including Columbus, Bladen, New Hanover, Pender, Brunswick, Onslow, and even Oren County in South Carolina.  

The hospice staff says that through the free counseling, they have seen a higher number of people come in, and take advantage of the services.
