Out of an abundance of concern for the health of ALL those we serve, Hospice of the Valley is postponing our community drop-in grief support groups and conducting virtual sessions instead. Adults interested in participating are asked to call our RSVP Line: 602-636-5390. Please leave your name, phone number and email address in order to provide you with information on any available groups.
Our New Song Center for Grieving Children is providing virtual support groups for children, ages 4 through teens, young adults and adults. Families may enroll by calling 480-951-8985 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Healing from loss.
When a loved one dies, we are swept away by loss. We feel engulfed by sadness—too broken to endure the pain and loneliness ahead. Our lives are forever changed and we can’t imagine how to go on.
Grief can be especially challenging for young people who are still maturing emotionally. We understand how much it can hurt when someone you love dies. It's normal to feel anger, sadness, withdrawal, guilt and anxiety.
You don’t need to face this transition alone. We offer up to 13 months of bereavement counseling and support to spouses/partners, family members and close friends of a loved one served by Hospice of the Valley. Helping you heal afterwards is part of our hospice care. We can be reached at (602) 530-6970.
Hospice of the Valley also provides grief support programs at no cost to anyone in our community. We can help you cope with the overwhelming sorrow you are feeling.

"When my wife Vicky passed away, I attended a grief support group and the experience has been of a benefit I cannot describe. I am touched by my counselor's sensitivity. A lot of things have been brought into focus and I feel much better about life ahead.
Your organization does important work and does it well."
Roy attended our grief support group after the death of his wife, and now comforts others.
“I share experiences with them, teaching others not to be defined by grief, to stay strong. I know I have touched people. It gives my life a lot more meaning. If my wife were still here she would not at all be surprised at what I am doing.”
“I am very grateful for the one-on-one counseling that has helped me work through grief and the issues surrounding losing a spouse. My counselor draws from a wealth of experience and knowledge and gives the right support.”
“I don't believe I'd be doing as well as I am without all this gracious help from Hospice of the Valley.”
