Bereavement

Support Groups

Losing a loved one can open up a wide range of feelings.  Everyone has the right to grieve in their own way. Studies show that acknowledging and sharing thoughts and feelings reduces loneliness and supports the healing process.  We realize that we are not alone and that others are in comparable situations with similar reactions. There is never a charge for Talbot Hospice support groups. Sessions are open to the public whether or not your loved one was served by Talbot Hospice and regardless of county of residence.

If you have any questions please reach out to lbarton@talbothospice.org or jgunn@talbothospice.org or call 410-822-6681 EXT 116
