Grief Support

A Partnership with Gilchrist Hospice

Mourning the death of a loved one is a deeply personal experience and one of our primary goals at Wylie Funeral Homes, PA is to assist families who are going through the very necessary process of grieving. We know from our work with families that grief is a natural response to losing a loved one and we are here for you as you begin your journey through grief, so we work to offer your family the very best in grief services. Our belief is that there is hope for healing and the potential for joy as your family moves forward.

We only work with the very best in grief services, so we sought experts whose focus is steeped in helping families to develop strength, resilience and coping skills. Partnering with Gilchrist Hospice Care allows us the opportunity to do just that with a partner that believes in the importance of offering much needed care. With comprehensive services ranging from grief counseling, support groups and workshops to retreats, special events and memorial services they facilitate the services your family may need during this difficult time. With exceptional services offered in Baltimore City, Towson, Hunt Valley, Columbia, Forest Hill, and Dundalk, this partnership allows us to ensure the highest quality support services in a thoughtful and accessible way.

For families whose loved one was cared for by Gilchrist, counseling is offered at no charge. For those families cared for by Wylie Funeral Homes, P.A. and other families in the community, the first session is at no charge, and the following sessions are offered at a reasonable fee.
