Caregivers Together

Mt. Hood Hospice believes there can be grief as we witness health declines of those we love. 

Group Details

Supporting someone during an illness can be beautiful and challenging. As their needs increase, we may notice  shifts in our roles, responsibilities and relationships. Anticipatory grief is a common part of the caregiving experience.

Groups are available for those who are taking care of someone with a serious illness to address the grief that comes with witnessing someone’s health decline. They are opportunities to talk with others who share this experience. Phone calls and community groups are free of charge.

All groups are hosted on Zoom while Covid -19 restrictions are in effect to protect the health of participants and staff. Support is available in helping you access internet based groups using a computer, smart phone or a landline.

Groups for Caregivers

If you are a family member or friend caring for an adult with a serious illness, you deserve support too. We offer a variety of groups in addition to the Facebook Group.

Caregivers Together Education Group

This group connects you with other caregivers. We can share the successes, challenges, joys and heartbreak that go along with providing support to someone you love. The shifts that happen in our relationships, responsibilities, and identities will be focal points during supportive conversations. This group has specific topics each week that we discuss.

Caregivers Together Social Hour ON-GOING

This is an informal discussion group where those who attend decide on our topic each week.

Family members or friends who are caring for an adult with a serious illness can connect with other caregivers on Facebook by joining Caregivers Together. See our Facebook Support tab for additional information.

Mornings at Meinig Social Hour In-Person ON-GOING

Currently our only in-person option. We meet in the park once a week weather depending for conversation and support. Our meet ups depend on the weather so make sure to register to get updates each week so you know if we are meeting.

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.

Because every day is a gift

MT. HOOD HOSPICE CELEBRATES 40 YEARS!

We are a not-for-profit Hospice that provides quality care for terminally ill patients and their loved ones, regardless of their ability to pay.

Living with a Terminal Illness

When a loved one is diagnosed with a terminal illness, the lives of those close to them are impacted as well. It's important to learn as much as you can about the illness. The more information you have, the more in control you will feel. Learn more.

What You Need to Know

Hospice care is covered 100% by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance. You can choose your hospice! Every Medicare beneficiary with Part A entitlement has a Medicare Hospice Benefit allowing them services from ANY Medicare certified hospice. This is regardless of their enrollment in any HMO. We care for people in residential facilities as well as at home. Learn more.
