Grief Support Groups
Family Hospice offers Grief Support Groups for those who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Grief can be very painful and difficult at times, and we invite you to come and join us as we share our thoughts, express our feelings and discuss how we can work through the grieving process.
Groups are offered throughout our service area at different times of the year. Many areas hold groups in six-week sessions in the spring and fall, and other areas offer a group monthly. Anyone from the community is invited to attend the Grief Support Group at no charge. Call 1-800-445-6262 for more information.
