Scalable support

Hospices save time and money with personalized bereavement care, delivered by text message.

Your patients' family members will automatically receive thoughtful messages for 13 months.

Meet Bereavement Conditions of Participation (CoP) requirements by delivering text messages twice a week for 13 months.

Step 1: Bereaved family members sign up online, using your hospice's custom code. They can add up to 4 supporters, who will each receive tips and suggestions about how to help.

Step 2: Subscribers and supporters immediately begin receiving texts customized based on cause of death, relationship to the deceased, and more. Messages are delivered at least twice a week, as well as on key dates, for 13 months.

Step 3: Each quarter you’ll have the opportunity to generate new leads, by sending texts directly to family members and their supporters, about upcoming events and outreach efforts.

Step 4: Every month you'll receive a report with detailed, accurate data about the support and resources you've provided.

The texting capabilities provided by Grief Coach are particularly meaningful during the COVID crisis, a time when many of the more traditional ways of providing in-person grief support are on hold. Our bereavement team now has the ability to offer personalized, text-based support to the thousands of hospice families we care for each year. This service adds a valuable new communications channel to the care we currently provide.
Bill Finn, President and CEO, Hospice of the Western Reserve
One of the things I love about Grief Coach is that it’s non-invasive. My team can be in regular touch with the families we support, without it being awkward. I am also glad that we can customize some of the text messages, so that they come specifically from our hospice.
Zeena Regis, MDiv. Hospice Bereavement Coordinator, Georgia, USA
I’ve been doing this work for a long time, and I know the challenges that hospices and other organizations face in needing to support thousands of grieving families. With COVID limitations, our in-person visits and support groups are temporarily suspended. It’s wonderful that these caring, well-timed personal messages can now go out to all of our families. Subscribers can add in their friends and family, too. Grief Coach gives our bereavement coordinators a way to ensure that none of our family members have to grieve alone.
