“No one should have to deal with grief alone.”
Our Full Circle bereavement counselors are available to provide individual support virtually or in-person. Group support continues to be solely virtual at this time. Please call with questions or to register: (912) 303-9442.
When someone dies, everyone in the family is affected. Hospice Savannah’s care extends beyond the treatment of physical symptoms to consider the emotional and social needs of patients and families. Grief is a direct result of love. When someone we love dies, we feel many different things. Some of us feel sad, some of us feel numb. Many people feel guilt or anger. Grief is different for each person.

Through Full Circle Grief and Loss Center we provide a team of qualified and experienced bereavement staff to deal with the emotional and psychological consequences of a loss. Not only do we offer a range of bereavement support for anyone whose relative or friend was cared for by Hospice Savannah, but we also support any community adult, teen or child in our coverage area who is having difficulty dealing with loss. Individuals may receive grief support on a one-on-one basis by appointment, in small group settings, and/or in a support group such as the basic Grief 101. Support groups for those who have experienced the death of a spouse/partner, or an infant, or whose loved one died by suicide are also available.
