Grieving is a process that requires much more time than our culture typically acknowledges or allows. Support during time of bereavement can help bring healing, renewal and hope for the future. Staff at Hospice House & Support Care of Williamsburg (HHSCW) maintain contact with bereaved families following the death of a loved one to offer comfort, support, referrals and services as needed.

Our bereavement support is open to all in the community regardless of their previous connection to HHSCW.  There is no cost to participants in HHSCW's bereavement programs, but donations are encouraged.


Seasonal Bereavement Support Groups


HHSCW offers seasonal bereavement support groups for any adult in the community who is grieving the death of a loved one.  Focused resources on grief and coping are provided at each session, and conversation at each session is centered on the grief experience.  The group is an opportunity for those navigating the grief process to feel less alone on the journey.

Our Fall Bereavement Support Group begins on November 10, 2020 and runs for 6 weeks every Tuesday from 10am-12pm with a break in between hours. This is a virtual group on Zoom.  There is no cost to participants, but registration is necessary as space is limited. Donations are encouraged.

To register for a support group, please contact Chaplain Abby Embry at 757-206-1177 or via email: bereavement@williamsburghospice.org. Register by November 3rd.
