“I looked forward to the sessions and being able to share my thoughts and feelings while knowing that no one would be judgmental or unkind.”

Latoya, participant

This group can often be a doorway to hope, even when hope seems unimaginable at first. This group is a grief support group for anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one. This group is open to anyone in the community who has experienced loss, not just those served by BJC Hospice. It is offered at no cost to participants due to the generous individual and corporate donations from the communities we serve.

Facilitated by our professional bereavement staff, this program will be offered in a weekly format for six consecutive weeks at a time. There will be numerous groups at various locations and times throughout the year. Please call 314.953.1676 or email BJC Hospice to register or for more information.

Support groups can bring comfort through companionship of others who have been through a similar loss and are confronting the resulting challenges and opportunities. Participants can find support and encouragement through sharing their stories, being with others, and knowing they are not alone on this journey.

“This group changed my life. It brought new connections, friendships and a safe place to share my sorrow.”

Colleen, participant

The support group provides:

  • An opportunity to be part of a community of grievers who have also lost a loved one
  • A safe space to share thoughts, feelings and experiences surrounding the loss
  • A place to breathe and normalize your experience of grief
  • Suggestions for coping tools and ways to care for yourself

“It is so helpful to have people to talk to who truly understand what I am going through”
