Dealing with the loss of a loved one is often the most challenging task one can face in a lifetime. Nashoba Nursing Service & Hospice provides a safe and comfortable environment to express the thoughts and feelings you may experience due to the loss of a loved one.

It is helpful to be with others to acknowledge and share deep feelings of grief. Joining a grief-support group can be a healthy step in working through your grief at your own pace and assist in your recovery. Topics of grief and healing will be discussed.
