Adult Bereavment Support Groups & Services

To those who have lost a loved one, the experience of grief can be very stressful and challenging.  It may have a profound impact on all aspects of life.  Hospice Care offers support services free of charge to bereaved individuals, family members and friends living in Westchester and Putnam Counties. 

  • Individual and Family Counseling: Grief counseling sets aside a time and place for individuals and families to talk about what they are experiencing in a non-judgmental and supportive atmosphere.  Counseling provides a place to gain understanding and to learn ways to cope with loss.  It is available in person or over the phone at no cost.
  • Support Groups: During bereavement, sometimes the best person to talk to is someone who has experienced a similar loss. Hospice Care hosts ongoing grief support groups that meet monthly, as well as short term specific support groups. There is also a telephone support network available.
  • Workshops: Hospice Care offers workshops on subjects that periodically arise during bereavement, providing information and strategies for coping.  Topics can include:
    • Spiritual Issues
    • Financial/Legal Issues
    • Holidays
    • Family Dynamics
    • Cooking for One
  • Community Outreach: Understanding of transition and loss begins with education.  Hospice Care offers special workshops for the community at large, to promote a more compassionate and sensitive approach to grief.  Workshops can be held in our offices or in the community as needed.
  • Annual Memorial Services: Hospice Care holds interfaith memorial services once a year.  These services give friends and families the opportunity to remember and honor loved ones.
