Grief & Bereavement Support Group

In-Person Grief Support Group

Our in-person group sessions take place every Saturday morning on the upper floor of the hospice residence.

The bereavement support group offers adults grieving a death a confidential time to share their concerns, triumphs, and day-to-day experiences. Trained facilitators guide discussion during the meeting.

Please Remember

Hospice Halifax offers grief and bereavement groups, which are intended to provide peer-based support with facilitators’ guidance, rather than counselling. The groups are for adults 18+ and are still free of charge. Open to Nova Scotian residents only.

Interested attendees must register on a week-to-week basis. Before registering, please review our group guidelines.
