Bereavement Support Groups provide a very good way for people to work through the grieving process. They provide people the opportunity, in a safe and supportive environment, to share their feeling and stories with others that are going, or have gone, through the loss of a loved one. Some groups are very general and deal with a wide range of loss. Other groups are more targeted to a specific group (i.e. the loss of a child). There are several organizations which offer these groups; from hospitals and hospices to visiting nurse associations. Listed below are some in short proximity to our facilities. Please click on the organization below for more information.
The Children's Room
The Children's Room offers hope and healing to children and teens age 3 to 18 who have experienced the death of a parent or sibling. We also provide opportunities for parents and caregivers to meet with each other and talk about their own experiences parenting a grieving child, and to give and receive support around their own grief. They include ongoing peer support groups, educational series for parents, teen programming, monthly arts-based family nights, and adult consultations. All services are provided free of charge. They also provide referrals and resources to families who are looking for additional grief-related services. Please visit the website for further information or call 781-641-0012.
