Bereavement Support

Families who lose a loved one at The Connecticut Hospice will hear from the Bereavement Department several times during the first year following the loss. Families receive mailings with information and resources about grief. Many families receive a follow-up bereavement support telephone call. Additionally, all families, whether or not their loss was through Hospice, are invited to attend support groups.

New groups are offered periodically throughout the year including daytime or evening groups serving widows and widowers, adults grieving the death of a parent, or those who have lost a family member, a partner, or a friend.

Registration is required for all groups. For more information, please call the Bereavement Office at 203-315-7544.
