The Bertolon Center for Grief & Healing is dedicated to helping those affected directly by loss as well those wanting to support and comfort loved ones and friends who are grieving. If you’ve lost a loved one, friend or colleague, we can help.

We support people of all ages through the challenging times that follow the loss of someone special.

We help you understand the grief you're experiencing, and identify resources and support to help you emerge from the pain you feel.

We provide a variety of options for learning more about grief and your feelings.

We also offer information, resources and guidance to family and friends who are concerned about someone who is grieving.

We can help you understand, cope and grow through the grieving process. Built on the expertise that Care Dimensions (formerly Hospice of the North Shore & Greater Boston) has provided since its founding in 1978, the Bertolon Center for Grief & Healing is staffed by specially trained and highly seasoned counselors and a full-time Children's Program Coordinator who is an expert in children's grief.

We also work closely with professionals from local long-term care facilities, hospitals, assisted living communities, schools and other businesses to help their staff with grief issues.

By developing the Bertolon Center for Grief & Healing, we have created a regional resource to serve hospice families as well as expand our reach to help anyone experiencing the loneliness and pain of grief.

Open to all members of the community and people of any age, the Bertolon Center for Grief & Healing can help you and your family heal from the pain of loss and continue grief’s journey with newfound hope and peace of mind.
