Losing a loved one can open up a wide range of feelings. Everyone has the right to grieve in his or her 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.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all of our support groups have "gone virtual" and moved to Zoom session for the near future. Please see descriptions and links below and call the Bereavement Team at Talbot Hospice for more details at 410-822-6681.
