Support Groups

Hospice of the West understands that everyone needs a support system to help navigate through the grief journey.

Grief support groups offer companionship and understanding from others who have experienced a similar loss and are experiencing the similar challenges that living with grief brings.  Support groups help you learn to permit yourself to grieve and to also live a happy productive life.

We also provide caregiver support groups.  Being a caregiver is difficult and often all consuming.  We at Hospice of the West want to provide an opportunity to assist in reducing caregiver stress, improving coping, decreasing isolation, improving self-care and learning practical tips that can aide in keeping loved ones in their homes as long as possible.

Hospice of the West is currently offering the following support groups:

*Caring for the Caregiver support group at Desert Foothills Library (1st Monday of the month)      

* “Healing Pathways” Bereavement support group at Desert Foothills Library (2nd & 4th Monday)             

* Parkinson’s Care Partner support group at Health South Scottsdale (4th Friday of month)
