Our Bereavement Support Program focuses on providing comfort, support and resources for the whole family.
Hospice Atlanta offers comfort and care for your loved one, as well as emotional care for all members of your family. We understand that grief is a very normal yet difficult process and everyone experiences it differently. Hospice Atlanta offers a wide range of support options for your personal journey.
Our Bereavement Coordinators are available by phone for grief support and counseling Monday through Friday. In addition, Hospice Atlanta offers virtual support groups, free of charge, to our bereaved community. For more information, please call (404) 869-3000 and ask to speak with someone in the Bereavement Department.

The Hospice Atlanta commitment to quality care extends beyond our patients and families. We recognize our responsibility to the greater community—a community filled with people experiencing grief. While we understand that grief can be heavy, we also know that heavy loads are much lighter when shared. As such, we provide a variety of opportunities for grieving persons to better understand grief and the grief process, receive specialized grief counseling and coaching, connect with others who are grieving, and develop tools for managing grief in healthy ways:
