Grief Center

“Hope is like the sun, which as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us.”– S. Smiles

The death of a loved one can be a deeply emotional and difficult experience. Grieving is hard work and can be exhausting. A range of physical symptoms can accompany the grieving process, from dry mouth and stomach aches to headaches, fatigue and chronic tearfulness. Friends and family members may not know what to say. You may feel very alone. This may be the hardest thing you’ve ever been through.

The Hospice of St Francis bereavement team can help. Whether your loss was very recent, or a year ago, our bereavement counselors are available to support you through this difficult time. We provide individual and group support, grief education, and social support activities at no charge to any resident of Brevard County.

Uplifting lives is our mission and we believe we can both support and uplift you during this difficult time. Please see the schedule of services below, and call our office to speak with one of our experienced, professional bereavement counselors. For services for grieving children, please see our North Star for Grieving Children webpage.

Please contact our office to verify meeting dates, times, and locations at 321-269-4240 or toll free 866-269-4240.
