  • You MUST pre-register!  These are closed groups of 8 weeks duration. There does not have to be a connection to an Alive Hospice patient. Anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one (usually within the past two years) is eligible. If a group is full, the individual will be offered a group at a different day or different location. If that doesn’t work, if they desire, they will be placed on a waiting list for a future group (and offered individual counseling as well).
