Bereavement Support

Everyone grieves differently; for some it is a very private process, others have networks of friends and family that meet their needs. But many people benefit from participating in a support group or activities with others who are grieving.

Pathways has an array of bereavement services to help people as they navigate this new territory without their loved one. We are here to help you heal — to absorb the loss and adapt to a life that has changed forever.

Support Groups

Pathways has many support groups — for spouses, for adults who lose parents, for loss of a child, and drop-in groups. Groups examine common issues, such as loneliness, anger, lifestyle changes, “normal” grief and coping skills. For information on our SUMMER and FALL 2020 groups, please contact Vivian Shults at (408) 773-4241.

Occasionally grieving people feel in need of 1-to-1 counseling. We have trained grief counselors in each of our offices that can give this kind of support.


Families or friends who experienced our hospice care will receive quarterly newsletters, “Seasons through Your Grief,” and pamphlets with helpful information about the grief process and ways to cope.

Open to All

Pathways opens its bereavement services to anyone in the community in need of this support, whether they had hospice care or not. Although our bereavement support is free, we encourage donations to the Pathways Foundations to ensure that we can always continue to provide grief support to anyone in the communities we serve.
