Join A Grief Support Group

Openings for upcoming Healing Journeys grief support groups in Tucson!

Casa de la Luz Hospice has openings for our Healing Journeys eight-week structured groups beginning the first week in October.  These groups offer support, connection and education. Participants will utilize the book, Understanding Your Grief, by Dr. Alan D. Wolfelt (books provided by Casa de la Luz).  A variety of days and times are available, and groups meet at a variety of locations including our main office on Oracle Road, St. Francis in the Foothills (Swan and River Roads) and Rancho Vistoso Memorial (Rancho Vistoso Blvd.).  Call Sally at (520) 544-9890 or email her at to ask about specific days, times and locations and to register for a group.  These groups are open to everyone in the community and are free of charge.

What previous participants have said about our Healing Journeys support groups:

“It was like coming home. A place where you could trust and say whatever you wanted.  I’ll miss this group and would like to take Healing Journeys again in the future.”

“I think it was remarkable, and a tribute to the facilitator, that the eight participants plan to stay in touch.  We care about each other.”

“To be accepted by strangers and to be united by bereavement and grief joins us in one of the most complicated, exhausting times in life.  I am forever grateful to each person for their open, heartfelt, heart-wrenching sharing.”

“Hospice and the group facilitator have provided a safe place in which to acknowledge the pain of loss and a practical approach to begin healing.  I am profoundly grateful for this work, hospice’s services, and my experience with the organization both through my mother’s death and my healing.  Thank you.”
