Bereavement Services

With Home Health & Hospice Care —you are not alone in your grief.

Bereavement Services from Home Health & Hospice Care (HHHC) are available to anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one. These services are based on a simple, yet powerful, philosophy: being able to talk about what you’re feeling, and finding compassionate support in that process. This is often the greatest source of solace and well-being.

Teen Topics
Ages 13 –18
Teen Topics is a group open to teens grieving the death of someone significant in their lives.
The goal of this group is to put teens in contact with others experiencing similar loss, helping
them to understand that they are not alone in their grief experience. It also provides coping
tools for the journey. Teens meet once a month for the academic year. Each session includes time for them to process what they are experiencing, as well as an activity such as collage, jewelry making, writing or yoga. Meets at HHHC's Merrimack office or at a prearranged off-site location. Pre-registration is required. For more information, contact the Good Grief Coordinator at 603-420-1914 or 1-800-887-5973 or email Eleanor.Owen@hhhc.org.

Good Grief Program for Children
Ages 4 –13
This program is for any child who is grieving the loss of a loved one. Children are encouraged to
express their feelings through art projects, writing exercises, group discussions, puppet play, and other age-appropriate activities. The program offers bereaved children an opportunity to develop coping skills in a safe and trusting environment with other children who are experiencing similar losses. Groups are facilitated by trained volunteers; children are grouped according to age.
Meets weekly in the spring and fall. Preregistration is required. This program is held in Merrimack.
