Adult Grief Support Groups

Due to the COVID-19 Outbreak, all in person and group counseling sessions are suspended until further notice.  Support from a Grief Counselor is still available by phone by calling 719-884-6530.  Leave a message and a Counselor will call you back. 

You don't have to go through this alone.

Family Hugs

No one knows exactly what you're feeling, and no one can make your grief go away. It belongs to you alone. But that doesn't mean you have to go through it alone. You've likely heard there are normal stages of grieving, and that's true. For many, it helps to walk through those stages with an experienced guide, or others dealing with loss, or resources to light the way.

Grief Support Groups

Grief support groups are led by professional grief counselors and volunteers. Formats include structured groups that may meet weekly or monthly, as well as informal gatherings. Current grief support groups include:

  • "Grief Journey" Adult Support Group – A six-week group, facilitated by a counselor, is offered six times each year.
  • Women's Group – Social in nature, meets monthly for a potluck.
  • Men's Group – An informal men's only get together, led by a volunteer.
Individual Grief Counseling

Short-term supportive and educational grief counseling is available for family and friends who have lost a loved one in our program. In-office appointments are available by calling 719-633-3400. Ask to speak with a Grief Counselor.

What Our Families Say

What you all do is amazing.  Thank you for all your help, support and guidance for my mother and family.  It was such a gift and a blessing to be with my mom and take care of her and to have her at home with my daughter and I.  We will never forget your kindness.  Thank you! ~ Patient's family

The services my husband and I received during his last stages of life were invaluable to us.  His primary wish at the end was to be at home.  I was very afraid that I couldn't grant that wish, but with the help of Pikes Peak Hospice he was able to be at home, where he was comfortable, until the very end.  I am also truly thankful for the grief counseling that you provided to me. ~ Patient's wife

Thank you for all your assistance during this time and for the care of my mother.  There are not enough compliments to give for the support, knowledge, bedside manner, courtesy and kindness. ~ Patient's daughter
