We ask that you call prior to coming to a group, this will allow us to ensure we can accommodate each participant and uphold social distancing. Please check our website, www.chhh.org, for updates.

Six Week Educational Course
We are now offering a 6-week educational group on grief. This will give attendees the vocabulary and an understanding of grief to make the support groups more impactful. Recommended for people 3-6 months after the loss of a loved one. Preregistration Required.
At Community Home Health & Hospice, we also care for staff who provide support to patients, residents and their loved ones. We are available to facilities, schools and community organizations following a death. We can tailor our support to meet the special needs of your group.
Children may participate in the children’s grief support group and Camp Cedars, a 3-day residential camp in August for children who have been attending our grief support groups. These services help children learn how to share their feelings and cope with grief and loss. Through remembering activities and creative play, children learn to talk about their grief in safe ways. Preregistration is required.
Teens face special challenges in grieving because they are still maturing mentally and emotionally. At a time when they want to be just like their friends, losing a loved one makes them very different. At the teen grief support group, they can connect with other teenagers who understand what they are going through. At group, teens enjoy playing pool, socializing, recreational activities and outings. Preregistration is required.
At the adult grief support group, friendly, caring people participate in supporting each other through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Participants share as much or as little of their story as they want–and others listen without judgment. Adults may drop in on a couple of sessions to see if a group is right for them. Preregistration is required.
This 8-week, small group support session is focused on the profound grieving process of suicide bereavement. The group is led by experienced medical social workers. Once started, sessions are closed to allow for a safe emotional setting. Preregistration is required.
