Grief support after a death

Grief is a natural response to the death of a loved one. Everyone grieves differently, and there is no timeline for how long it takes. Know that you are not alone in your grief journey.

Allina Health Hospice offers grief support to hospice patients' families and friends for 13 months following the death. Grief support includes individual counseling by experienced grief counselors, referrals to groups and other mental health providers, book recommendations, and supportive and educational mailings.  

We also offer support groups, which are open to anyone in the community, in addition to maintaining a list of all known community support groups.

If you are in our service area (the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area) and would like more information or resources on dealing with grief, contact Allina Grief Resources at 651-628-1752 or Please note that this line is for non-emergency information and is monitored only during business hours Monday-Friday. If you need help immediately, please see the contact information to the right.
