Grief/Bereavement Resources

Please visit the welcome center anytime during the week or call 617-325-0186 to set up a weekend appointment.

If you want to talk, have a cold drink or coffee, we are here for you. We have some Care Notes to choose from and some literature you can take home.

We are not licensed Social Workers but we’re willing to listen. You are part of our family and we love you.

We are not going to pretend or claim we are Grief Specialists when we are not. There won’t be a lot of text to read or links to click on.

Our suggestion to you if you are having a hard time coping is to Please visit your Primary Care Physician for help referrals.

Having said that, here are two organizations that our families have said helped them in a time of need.
