Application for Hospice Grief Services

The Community Hospice provides free grief support services to families in upstate NY who have experienced the death of a family member or friend. A Bereavement Counselor will meet with you and your family to discuss the programs and services we have available. Services may include:

-Individual or Family grief counseling, for adults and children
-Support Groups, including Widow/Widowers, Daughter's Group, Living with Loss etc.
-Camp Erin, a free weekend camp for grieving children and teens, 6-17 years old
-Wave Riders, a free six week program for grieving children and teens, 3-17 years old

These services are free of charge, and are available to everyone, regardless of whether the person who died was a Hospice patient. Additional supports are available for schools and organizations in our community, including training, support groups, memorial services, outreach and a crisis support team.

Once you have submitted your request, we will contact you within a few business days.
