We’re with you every step of the way.

⚠ Due to the COVID-19 virus, grief counseling groups are either cancelled or held virtually until further notice. Please visit our events and schedule to learn more, or call 502-456-5451.

Grieving is as much a part of our lives as living and dying. Many of us, however, won’t seek help following a devastating loss. Hosparus Health is so committed to grief counseling that we offer services at no cost for up to 13 months after the death of a loved one. This includes pre-death counseling for anticipated deaths.

Led by licensed professionals, sessions meet monthly or twice monthly, and can be individual, family, or group.

Let us help you start healing.

If you or a loved one are ready to speak with a grief counselor, we’re here for you. Give us a call at 502-456-5451 or 888-345-8197, or send us a message by selecting ‘Contact Us.’ You can also see what your community is sharing and find comfort in online discussions with others experiencing similar situations by visiting our Discussion Board.

What you can expect with grief counseling services.

We offer special grief counseling services for adults, children, and teens, as well as extended family and friends. In fact, grief counseling is available for anyone in the community, regardless of a previous engagement with Hosparus Health. Thanks to our generous donors, there are no fees for support groups.
