Virtual Support Group Meetings Notice

All support groups are currently being held virtually. Please contact our Bereavement Department at 772-567-5551, ext. 5171 to register or for more information.

Support groups allow for you to come together with other individuals in the community who are experiencing the same challenges as you are and find support in one another. Our support groups are hosted by VNA counselors and social workers who can facilitate conversation with the group give you the help you need.

Caregiver Support Groups

Our caregiver support groups focus on helping those who are caring for a loved one through their caregiver journey. At a support group meeting, you will have the opportunity to talk about your experiences, share tips and ideas and listen to others who understand the caregiving journey. The VNA Caregiver Support Groups are open to anyone in the public regardless of the diagnosis of their loved one

Caregiver Support Group Schedule

2nd & 4th Thursday Monthly
10:30 a.m. -11:30 a.m.

Bereavement Support Groups

Grieving the loss of a loved one is difficult, and no two people experience the bereavement process the same way or for the same length of time. The VNA offers public bereavement support groups for anyone in the community who has experienced a loss – not just those who have been served by VNA Hospice. Support groups are led by VNA counselors and at the support groups, attendees have the opportunity to share their challenges, express their emotions and connect with others who understand the journey they are on.
