Hospice Bereavement Services
Hospice of Jefferson County offers a wide range of bereavement services to assist families and friends in the time following the loss of a loved one. All groups are open to members of the community, as well as Hospice families.
Bereavement is a personal experience, which no two people find the same. We, at Hospice, are here to assist in whatever way is appropriate for the specific needs of persons experiencing a loss.
All bereavement services are offered free of charge. The Hospice Foundation, supported by the generosity of our community, makes this resource available to all who might benefit.
Please contact us at 315.788.7323 for information about these services.

In late spring each year Hospice of Jefferson County holds a Memorial Service to remember loved ones lost in the past year. All family and friends are welcome to attend.
Children & Youth Support Groups
Children of all ages are invited to come together and create a holiday ornament in honor of their deceased love one.
Hospice bereavement counselors, social work staff and trained volunteers are available to make office or home visits to individuals who are experiencing difficulty with the death of a loved one. Individual counseling can be done alone, or in concert with group participation.
