Bereavement Services

HospiceCare in The Berkshires offers counseling services to anyone in the community through the grieving process. Guidance and support is provided through individual or group sessions offered free of charge due to the tremendous support and donations of the Berkshire Community.

Compassionate Support

Everyone experiences loss in their own way, yet no one should have to grieve alone. Bereavement support can be helpful in the process of recovering from the death of a loved one. Bereavement groups provide a safe environment for sharing sorrow and connecting with others who have had similar experiences with grief and loss.

HospiceCare in The Berkshires provides bereavement support as part of our mission to serve all residents in Berkshire County who have suffered the loss of a loved one. Bereavement services are available for surviving family members and friends, as well as any other community members experiencing loss, and are free of charge. Our bereavement team also offers community education programs and in-service training programs for professionals on the topics of grief and loss.

Services include:

    • One-on-one support
    • Support groups
    • Programs for adults, teens and children
    • Remembrance services
    • Journaling/writing bereavement groups
    • Sudden loss intervention
    • Educational programs

Online Grief and Loss Resources

Grief and loss can be incredibly isolating, particularly during a global crisis that requires social distancing. There are many resources available online, including virtual grief groups, support services, and education about loss and mental health. We’ve compiled a list of links to these helpful grief and support groups that can be helpful to our Berkshire County clients.

We also recommend “Grieving Alone Together,” an e-book of articles and resources provided by the National Funeral Directors Association and specifically written for the unique challenges of mourning the loss of a loved one during COVID-19.
