Accredited by The Joint Commission

Our bereavement services offer support to family members and friends after the death of their loved one. These services are available to the Atlanta metropolitan community, whether or not the patient was in our hospice program.

Bereavement services include:

  • Support by phone
  • One in-person counseling session
  • Invitation to a Remembrance Service
  • Mailings about grief and coping
  • Holiday grief mailing
  • Information about children and teens in grief
  • Referrals for supportive therapy
  • Grief support group
  • Group presentations on the grieving process
  • Camp STARS, a bereavement camp for families

The grief support group is held on the second and fourth Sunday of each month from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. at Hospice Atlanta Center (get directions). The group is drop-in, with no reservation required or attendance commitment.

From time to time, we offer time-limited grief support groups which require a six-to-eight-week commitment. Please call for availability of these groups. There are many other grief support groups in the metropolitan area. Please call and verify the schedule for any community group in which you are interested.

Our Bereavement Coordinators are available by phone for grief support and counseling during regular business hours Monday through Friday. Please call (404) 869-3000 and ask to speak with someone in the Bereavement Department.
