Care and support after the loss of a loved one
Grieving Couple

Grief is a very personal journey, traveled in different ways and at different paces. Our professional grief counselors and trained volunteers ensure that you don't have to make the journey alone.

The Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care Center for Grief and Loss offers a range of grief support and bereavement services so that family members can find the approach that's right for them. Grief support is available at no cost to families of Pikes Peak Hospice patients and is offered for 13 months following the death of a loved one. Support is available to all in our community free of charge.

Finding the grief support that's right for you

We know that the journey that begins with hospice care does not end with your loved one's passing. Your grief and how you experience it is uniquely yours. Even if you have experienced a loss before, your feelings and healing process can be very different each time.

Our grief support is built around a simple belief: Grief is normal and necessary. It is part of our human condition, and we must go through it in the wake of profound loss.

Coping with the roller coaster of emotions and reactions can seem overwhelming at times. That's why Pikes Peak Hospice offers a variety of support services for adults, teens and children to help explore, understand and express the grief that is unique to you.

We provide ongoing support through our monthly Journeys newsletters and free literature on specific types of grief, special presentations, and commemorative events. Individual grief counseling by appointment and grief support groups are available for you and your family as you take important steps toward healing.
