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

Hospice Halifax Bereavement Support Group

Our drop-in, free-of-charge, year-round group sessions take place every Saturday morning, excluding holiday weekends, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at 1471 Carlton Street in Halifax. This group offers men and women grieving the death of a loved one a confidential time to share their concerns, triumphs, and day-to-day experiences.  Trained facilitators guide discussion and provide information on grief and loss.
