End of Life Bereavement Facilitators offer non medical, non diagnostic support to families after loss of a loved one in order to deal with the emotional and spiritual elements of grief and the emotions that come with it. EOLBFs help define new rituals and rites around the aftermath of loss and introduce the concept of re building the new version of self after a loss or near loss. The EOLBF also assists families through the process of living with a loved one with terminal illness to focus on the living, not the dying and are especially active in large families, or those who have additional considerations such as family disputes, disagreements over care, families all over the world, etc. EOLBFs work alongside allied practitioners and other EOL practitioners and fill the gaps that the family has.
