Bereavement Support

Providing comfort and resources for the whole family

 

Hospice Atlanta brings home immense comfort and physical care for your loved one and extensive emotional care for all members of your family.  We understand that grief is a very normal yet difficult process and everyone experiences it differently.  That’s why we have such a wide range of support options for you.

Hospice Atlanta Bereavement Services include:

  • Support by phone
  • One in-person counseling session
  • Invitation to a Remembrance Service
  • Mailed grief and coping information
  • A virtual library of resource information
  • Referrals for supportive therapy
  • 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.
