We offer support to patients and close family members throughout the continuum of illness. Basic counseling services and relaxation/bodywork sessions are available. Grief and Bereavement Services are available for approximately one year after death. We run three year-round support groups. Through the Caregivers Connections Support Program* we offer Time Out, a stress reduction program for family caregivers. Volunteer Assistance is available while caregivers attend sessions or seek other support. Our Coping with Cancer Support Group is available for people with any stage of cancer as well as the family and friends of people with cancer. The Grief Support Group is for those who have lost a loved one and focuses on understanding the grief process, coping healthily, and adjusting effectively.

*Caregivers Connections is partially funded through a Title IIIB grant of MA Executive Office of Elder Affairs and the Federal Administration for Community Living.
