Bereavement and Support Groups

Centra Hospice offers virtual educational and supportive groups for adults dealing with the death of a loved one.

Our approach to care

We help you understand the grief process. Services are available to family/friends of patients served by Centra Hospice up to 13 months from the death. Additionally, we offer individual counseling, regularly-scheduled memorial services and referrals for additional community resources.  

Our support groups are free and open to the community. Some topics include grief and Covid-19, managing the loss of a parent, loss of spouse/partner, loss of a child, loss of a sibling and suicide grief support. 

While everyone deals with grief differently, there are common experiences that grieving persons share:

  • Change in sleep and/or appetite patterns 
  • Decreased energy
  • Anxiousness
  • Difficulty concentrating/making decisions
  • Forgetfulness
  • The feeling of being in a fog
  • Heightened sensitivity
  • A desire to cocoon immediately following the death
  • Guilt
  • Relief
  • Would have, should have, could have, what if?
  • Why, why now, why this way?
  • Questioning the meaning of life

While each person's journey through grief is unique, it is important to know you are not alone. Call or email us at
