Adult Grief Support Groups

A group setting can allow you to share your story and find healing through a community of common experiences. Hospice provides adult and children’s bereavement support group meetings on a monthly basis. Groups meet in various locations in Orange and Sullivan Counties. Note that bereavement support groups are provided free of charge to anyone in the community, regardless of whether the loved one was on hospice care or not. Adult Support Groups are offered through a Grief Themed Curriculum that runs on a six month rotation. New members may join at anytime and continue as needed. If interested in joining a support group, please call our Director of Bereavement at 845-561-6111.

Individual Grief Counseling

Grief can be as individual as the person experiencing it, so providing comfort must also be personalized. Our Social Workers assist Hospice families with grief support, and may meet one-on-one in homes, workplace, or at an alternate site.


The Children’s Grieving Center provides families in Orange & Sullivan County, New York with loving support in a safe place where children, teens and their families grieving a death can share their experience as they move through the healing process.
