Bereavement Services and Grief Counseling
Hospice of Orange and Sullivan Counties provides supportive bereavement services and grief counseling for anyone experiencing the loss of a loved one. These services are available at the time of admission all the way through the duration of the illness and the grieving process.
Our trained staff understands no one “gets over” losing a loved one; we only “get through” it, eventually finding a place where life starts to feel normal again. Grief is truly a process that is different for everyone; it is a journey, and part of our care to the families we serve is to provide support through that journey.
Adult Grief Support Groups For All are Free and Open to the Community.
To maximize all safety, Hospice is pleased to announce that all of our grief support groups are now virtual and are offered through our zoom platform.
If interested in joining a support group, please call our Bereavement Department: (845) 561-6111 x 232.

Individual Grief Counseling for Families Receiving Hospice Care
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. Telephone Counseling Available. Please call the Bereavement Director at (845) 561-6111 x 232.
Children and Family Grief Services
Children and Family Grieving Services promote healing by providing an opportunity for youth to express their thoughts, verbalize their feelings, and share their experiences of grief. This is accomplished through art, music, books, and discussions. We service young children ages 6 through teens through the Thriving Families Grief Support Group.
