Bereavement Support

Homeland Hospice offers Bereavement Support through phone calls, mailings, one-to-one support as well as the group sessions listed below. Our support groups offer self-awareness, healing, coping skills, and a sense of community and helping others.

I greatly appreciate the monthly luncheon. Indeed, it is a safe place to be. And learning about the experiences of others has helped my healing process. Thank you.
