Hospice Dove

 

To continue our agency’s efforts to maximize safety of all, Hospice is pleased to  provide Virtual Grief support to those currently experiencing loss in our community. These groups are free and open to the public regardless if your loved one received hospice services.

 

 

Hospice Bereavement Support Groups combine grief counseling and education to promote healing following the death of a loved one.  These groups provide emotional, psychological, and moral support for its members.

Individuals who are in Acute Grief, are invited to initially attend the Healing Hearts Support Group, before moving on to any additional support group.   Healing Hearts is a closed group that offers 8 consecutive weeks of intense support for those who had a loved one die within the last 3 months.

Our Integrating Grief Support Groups are for individuals who are learning to navigate their lives while experiencing grief. Although many groups are open and ongoing, members are encouraged to participate for 12 consecutive sessions and benefit from the full impact of the supportive curriculum.

When a member decides to conclude their participation, we ask that they intentionally participate in a final session with the group members to provide time for closure and goodbyes.

Support Groups have a Membership Capacity; if a member fails to attend 2 consecutive sessions without contacting the facilitator, the membership is considered terminated.

All Group Members Require:

  • Completion of clinical intake – 845-561-6111
  • Complete a Telehealth Consent w/ Facilitator
  • Receive Facilitator invites into support group sessions
