You Are Not Alone

Each grief experience is unique, but you are not alone. Hospice of Dubuque is here to support those who are grieving a loss. Our bereavement coordinator and grief volunteers listen, offer guidance, and share resources. Bereavement services are available to any tri-state resident, even if there is no prior affiliation with Hospice of Dubuque. Our bereavement program is entirely funded by community support. Services are available at no cost, but donations are accepted.

Bereavement Support Groups

Our caring staff and volunteers facilitate periodic bereavement support group sessions. By sharing with others who are also grieving, support group participants begin the path to healing. Each session runs for six weeks and pre-registration is required. For more information, call 563.582.1220.


In the video below, Mary Kate Bristow sings an original song “Letting Go.” Many people have been touched by this song, written by Robert Dunn and Mary Kate Bristow. The “Letting Go” video includes photos of patients and families we have served.
