We Share Your Journey with Caring Support for Loved Ones of All Ages

Grieving the death of a loved one is a natural part of healing. The oldest and most experienced hospice in the region, Hospice of the Piedmont has provided expert, compassionate comfort care and symptom management to tens of thousands of terminally ill patients since 1980. But, the thing that sets us apart from for-profit hospices is that we’ve created a continuum of care that supports the entire family on the end-of-life journey. We offer ongoing bereavement support for everyone during a time of great worry, stress, and grief, children to adults, whether their loved one participated in our hospice program or not. Our hospice and grief support services are provided to patients and families at no cost.

alone-on-benchOur Center for Grief & Healing provides those experiencing a loss with an understanding and supportive environment in which to process their grief and heal in the year following a loved one’s death. Our support groups, events, workshops, camps, and counseling for adults, teens, and children encourage a healthy adjustment to feelings of loss.

Our Center for Children’s Journeys program uses music and art therapy, supportive counseling, bereavement camps, and multi-week support groups to help kids, ages four to eighteen, express feelings of sadness and loss.

Our Center for Children’s OASIS connects teens experiencing a loss in a creative, multi-week dinner-discussion group.

Our winter and spring memorial services in Charlottesville and Culpeper celebrate loved ones with live music, a candle-lighting, and inspirational readings; see our calendars.
