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.

What is a “Grief Intensive?”
Our Group Grief Intensive provides a unique, professionally-facilitated opportunity for participants to focus on, and work through, key aspects of grief. Over a 6-week period, participants are encouraged to deeply process specific areas of their grief experience, while connecting and sharing with others in a closed, structured, small-group setting. Participants are supported to explore a new aspect of grief each week, equipped the practical tools necessary for managing their grief, on their own terms, in healthy ways.
Is there a Fee?
No. As a non-profit organization, this a community service we offer to bereaved individuals, free of charge.
