Please know that families can count on our hospice professionals for ongoing support and education. One such area of support is bereavement care. This is a vital element of our hospice services for families. Before, during, and after a loved one’s death, hospice bereavement services are an important support system that assist patients, families, and caregivers with their respective grief. 

Bereavement Services


Our bereavement program provides the psychological, emotional, and spiritual support needed during life’s difficult transition after a loved one’s passing. Families and caregivers are provided with a continuum of care through a supportive bereavement program that continues for thirteen months after the loss of a loved one.


A telephone screening is necessary for enrollment for support groups. For your safety, we are providing the option of phone screenings, phone/virtual groups, and virtual/phone individual grief counseling sessions. Our bereavement support groups continue to meet, some virtually and some in-person.

Spouse or Partner Loss

Daytime: Wednesday afternoons 2:00pm-3:30pm. Winter group begins on December 7, 2022 and spring group begins on February 15, 2023. Both will meet in person with a Zoom option.

For all Bereavement Support groups, please contact Amanda Pedretti, RN, CHPN, EOLD, Hospice Clinical Manager, at or 781-610-1461 to register. In-person meeting locations will be provided upon registration.
