Grief Support Groups

Hospice of San Joaquin offers bereavement support groups on a regular basis. These groups are for anyone in the community who has experienced the death of someone close to them. Our loss of spouse group is specially tailored to address those who have lost a spouse or partner. Groups give participants a chance to learn more about the grieving process and gain support and insight from others who have had similar experiences. Support groups meet for six consecutive weeks and are offered in Stockton, Lodi, and Manteca.
