Many people find it comforting to know they are not alone in their grief experience. We offer regular one-on-one counselling, support groups and programs for bereaved people looking for a safe, supportive environment 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 holiday weekends)
  • Community members can come at any point in the grief process, whether their loved one died at a hospice or in another circumstance
  • Free of charge

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.

The bereavement support 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.

Confirm your interest in attending by calling 902-446-0929.
