Grief Counseling and Support Groups

The Community Hospice provides information and support to facilitate successful transitions through the grief process. Typically our counselors provide one to six sessions per client, and then often refer to one of our support groups. Grief counseling is available for individuals of any age, or families, and is free of charge. Please apply online, or call us at: 518-724-0200

Holiday Hope - November 17th, 3:00pm-4:00pm

The holiday season can be a challenging time for those who are grieving, as rituals and family traditions that held such meaning can feel different when a loved one has died. Add the practical complexity brought on by COVID, and it's apparent that the holidays will be different this year.

Join Bereavement Counselors Meg Parobeck, LCSW and Mark Kearney, LMHC for "Holiday Hope," a virtual program that will cover tips on how to cope with grief during the holidays. A supportive space will be created for attendees to share and come away with a better understanding of what they might expect during this holiday season. 


Winter Remembrance Service - January 14th, 5:00pm-6:00pm

A virtual event to honor our recently deceased hospice patients and their loving caregivers and families. We will offer a space for the bereaved to gather and celebrate the lives of their loved ones through a candle lighting ceremony, readings, and shared memories.
