HopeHealth is offering virtual support during COVID-19. Learn about our virtual support groups.

The Center for Hope & Healing

Every person’s grief experience is unique. If you are grieving the loss of someone, we can help you toward a path of hope and renewal. The grief support professionals at our Center for Hope & Healing offer compassionate and individualized support for grief at any stage. We offer an expansive grief support group program and offer community programs like Camp BraveHeart for kids as well as remembrance events. Our grief support services are offered throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

Counseling and Support Groups

Central to the mission of HopeHealth, we provide ongoing support and counseling to members of our community.

Our counselors can meet privately with individuals and families, both children and adults, in an office setting, in the community or at your home. Counselors have advanced training and experience in grief support and the emotional effects of serious illness.

We also offer a variety of grief support groups specific to what you may be experiencing. These include six-week sessions and ongoing general monthly groups led by trained facilitators. They are open to anyone who has experienced a loss regardless of whether hospice was used.

(If you are caring for someone with a memory impairment, you may be interested in our dementia caregiver support groups.)

HopeHealth hosts special events in Massachusetts and Rhode Island where you can remember a loved one. All events are free to attend.
