Bereavement Support

Families and individuals who lose a loved one at The Connecticut Hospice will be contacted by our Bereavement Department several times during the first year following their loss. Families and individuals will receive mailings with information and resources about grief and most will also receive a follow-up bereavement support telephone call.

New bereavement support groups form periodically throughout the year and are scheduled at varying times during the daytime and early evening hours. The types of groups also vary and may be structured to assist widows and widowers, adults grieving the death of a parent, or those who have lost a family member, a partner, or a friend. Bereavement group fees for patient family members and or partners are covered in “hospice benefits” provided by Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance. As a community service, our groups are also open to bereaved residents of Branford who have lost a loved one within the past year.

All bereavement groups meet at The CT Hospice facility located at 100 Double Beach Road, Branford, CT 06405

Pre-registration is required for all groups.
