Bereavement Support

Supportive Care of Orleans offers grief support and counseling to anyone who has experienced a recent loss – regardless of any prior affiliation with hospice.

One-on-one Bereavement Counseling

Our specially trained bereavement counselors offer individual support for 13 months after a loss, or as long as needed.

The service includes personal visits, phone calls, and emails for ongoing support.

Bereavement Support Meetings

(Paused due to COVID)

Face-to-face social support is important to give those who have experienced a loss the opportunity to lean on each other for comfort during a shared experience.

Supportive Care of Orleans hosts Bereavement Support meetings every Thursday night at 6:30 pm at our office on West Avenue in Albion. These meetings are open to anyone in the community, as well as to all of our Hospice families.

We also offer a Children’s Bereavement Group for any child or teen who has suffered a loss.

First time attending our support group? We are so glad you are considering attending our bereavement support group. Although registration is not required, please call 585-589-0809 ahead of time in case of inclement weather or scheduling conflicts to be sure the group will be meeting.

The group is held after office hours, so participants must use the rear entrance of the building, which is located in the back of our campus.

See our campus map for directions.
