Traveling Grief’s Journey Together
Grief has no timetable. It may come in waves during the turbulent months of a loved one’s illness and then intensify after he or she has passed away. Each experience is unique and deeply personal. Emotions run the gamut from sadness, anxiety and guilt to anger, helplessness and depression. Whatever the reaction, Care Dimensions will be by your side, offering support and comfort – helping you cope and move forward.
With its scope of services and staff, our grief support program is the most comprehensive in Massachusetts. Our licensed bereavement counselors offer support groups and workshops for anyone who has experienced a death. We also offer individual counseling to people grieving the death of a loved one who was on Care Dimensions hospice service.
We help families understand what they’ve been going through, identify resources and provide options for learning more about grief and feelings, individually and in groups. We also teach people how to support and comfort others who are grieving. Services include:
- Individual consultation and referrals
- Workshops and support groups
- Bereavement resources
- Community education programs
- Remembrance and tribute programs

Here for You When You Need Us
There’s never a wrong time to call for grief support. Call us:
- When children are affected by the loss of a loved one and need support expressing their feelings

- When a loss has affected your business, congregation or school, and you want guidance on how to comfort and support those who are grieving
Supporting Care Dimensions’ Bereavement Programs
Community support makes it possible for us to provide most of our services without charge, enabling anyone in the community to access the support they need, whether or not their loved one was a Care Dimensions patient. Consider supporting us as a volunteer or with your tax deductible donation. With your help, we can continue our mission of healing.
You are invited to honor your loved one through one of Care Dimensions’ commemorative fundraising efforts such as our Memorial Donations, Tributes or Tree of Lights. To learn more, visit Ways to Give.
