Grieving the death of a loved one is never easy, but support from others and sharing your loss can lessen the burden. To help you, Community Hospice & Palliative Care conducts open bereavement support groups throughout the year.
These support groups create a safe and comfortable environment where you can share with others who are grieving. Led by our trained bereavement counselors, these sessions are ongoing and available to anyone who has experienced a loss.
This group meets one to two times a month depending on location. Please note below the locations, dates and times offered or you may also Click here.
