Grief Support Groups

Grief support is available to everyone in our community. You do not have to receive other hospice services to take part in our grief support programs. If you are grieving the death of someone close to you, call us at (831) 430-3000 or email us. We tailor support to fit your needs, often with a combination of individual and group support.
