JASPER — The Dubois County Community Foundation presented Hosparus Health with a $10,000 grant Friday to fund grief services at its new Southern Indiana office, which is slated to open in mid-August.

The new office, located 225 W. 41st St., Suite C, in Jasper, will offer comprehensive hospice care and palliative services to patients and families in Dubois, Perry, Orange, Crawford, Daviess, Martin, Pike and Spencer counties. In addition to medical care, hospice includes social and emotional support, such as grief counseling, during a serious illness and after a patient’s death.

The grant will help fund bereavement programs, including grief support groups for adults and children, a community memorial service and School Grief Relief, a specialized program offered in local elementary, middle and high schools.
