Many people find it comforting to know they are not alone in their grief experience. We offer regular support groups and programs for bereaved people looking for a safe, supportive environment in which to explore their feelings of loss.

Hospice Halifax Bereavement Support Group

  • For adults
  • Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (excluding holidays)

Our group sessions take place every Saturday morning, excluding holiday weekends, on the upper floor of the hospice residence. In the summer, we offer group sessions on an intermittent schedule.

This group offers adults grieving the death of a loved one a confidential time to share their concerns, triumphs, and day-to-day experiences.  Trained facilitators guide discussion during the meeting. Please call for more information or to relay your interest in attending.
