Grief Support Services

We Can Help

For loved ones of patients and for the entire community, grief support staff and volunteers understand that each person’s reaction to grief is unique.  Sometimes, it might be difficult to find people who are willing to listen to our hurt in a nonjudgmental and comforting way. We are able to provide extra support in addition to your existing support system.


We can help.  Our staff and volunteers provide: 

  • Private, confidential grief support visits

  • Written materials and on-line resources specific to your unique needs

  • Referrals for local counselors who work with grief and loss

  • Free community support groups and classes

Grief Support

We provide one-on-one grief counseling to both hospice patients and their families and to anyone in the community who have suffered the loss of a loved one.

We are currently providing grief support in-person, virtually and by phone and can direct you to written materials and online resources specific to your unique needs.

Services de apoyo al duelo

Ahora se ofrecen servicios de apoyo para el duelo en Español para los seres queridos de los pacientes de hospicio, los niños, y para toda la comunidad. El personal de apoyo al duelo y los voluntarios entienden que la reacción de cada persona al dolor es única.

A veces, puede ser difícil encontrar personas que estén dispuestas a escuchar nuestro dolor de una manera reconfortante y sin prejuicios. Podemos ofrecer soporte adicional además de su sistema de soporte existente.

Para comenzar, llame al 707-267-9801 (opcion 1) y se comunicará con Mayra Samano, Consejera de Duelo.
