Help is Here

Dealing with and living with a loved one’s death is difficult. Whether it has been months or years since your loss, Mt. Hood Hospice offers support groups and education for bereavement. Mt. Hood Hospice offers support groups for family members and friends witnessing the declining health of an important adult and for adults  grieving a loss due to a death. These groups can provide a supportive environment to help you develop coping skills. See below for a list of groups.

About Mt. Hood Hospice

Mt. Hood Hospice has been providing care and bereavement support to families in Multnomah and Clackamas Counties for over 40 years. We are a not-for-profit, free standing, independent, community-based hospice.

Mt. Hood Hospice was the first free-standing hospice in Oregon to be granted Medicare certification in 1987. Since that time we have stayed current in compliance with changing CMS regulations while remaining true to our original ideal: to provide the highest quality care to families coping with life-limiting illness, emphasizing comfort, dignity and choice.
