Mental-Emotional Care

Mental-emotional care helps people who are faced with a big change in their health and life. For instance, learning about a serious illness could be difficult. Also, a referral to hospice can take a toll on emotions. In cases like these, our mental health care professionals can help. They work with range of mental health conditions and emotions such as anxiety, depression, and more.

Respite Care

We provide short-term relief care so that your care-givers so can rest.

Spiritual Care

At Family First, we honor our patients’ spiritual and religious beliefs. Spiritual care can offer hope during times of crisis. We offer pastoral and spiritual care support to all patients and families.

Grief and Loss Support

Grief is a personal journey toward healing. Each person experiences it differently from the next. This is common in families when there is a loss of life. Grief may appear as sadness, anxiety, or anger. Sometimes, people feel grief both before and after a loss.

Grief and loss support can help us find our way again when someone we love dies. Therefore, we offer grief counseling, bereavement, and caregiver support.

Our support starts from the time you enter our care and beyond. Your bereavement counselor will support your family, friends, and loved ones. This support starts now and continues after their loss.

Volunteer Support

Volunteers offer companionship. They also assist with patient support. Sometimes, they may help with daily activities such as reading. Also, some volunteers run errands.
