Many people find group support sessions, where they can interact with others going through the grieving process, most beneficial. Hospice Alliance offers a variety of group support formats, from regularly scheduled sessions with a set group of people, to informal drop-in sessions.

COVID Support Groups

In the past year, many people have lost family and friends during a very uncertain time. Some were unable to spend their last days with loved ones, and others were unable to have the memorial service that they had planned. The people and places that we have depended on in times of difficulty have been largely limited. If you would like to share your experience, give and receive support, we invite you to join us on the first Tuesday of each month. You are invited to attend as many or as few meetings as you would like.

Dates – First Tuesday of Each Month:
