Group Options

Hospice House & Support Care of Williamsburg offers a robust Walking/Social Group program with a variety of opportunities for gathering with individuals in the same boat.



Walking Group:

This is a group for anyone in the community dealing with the death of a loved one.  Regular walks are scheduled each week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays in the Williamsburg area.  Each hour-long walk is followed by breakfast or lunch at an area restaurant.  See the events calendar for dates, times and meeting locations.




Women's Lunch Group (First Year & Beyond):

This is a group for bereaved women who have lost their partners.  The group meets monthly in the home of a Hospice House bereavement volunteer or in an area restaurant.  It is an opportunity for grieving individuals to talk openly about their feelings and challenges as well as to find fellowship over food.  Many of the women who participate in this program establish solid friendships when they might have been left completely alone in the area at the death of a spouse or partner.  Pay-your-own-way.





Men's Lunch Group:

This is a group for bereaved men who have experienced the death of a partner or spouse.  The group meets monthly at a local restaurant for lunch.  Like the women's lunch group, this group provides an opportunity for grieving individuals to find commonality and friendship through the sharing of grief journeys over a meal.  Pay-you-own-way.





Sunday Dinner Group:

This is a co-ed group that meets up to two times a month at an area restaurant for dinner.  Past dinner locations have included: The Whaling Company, Olde Towne Pizza, Two Rivers Country Club.  When you're grieving it's often difficult to eat out alone or as a third-wheel, but in this group you don't have to worry about either of those things!  Anywhere from 30-50 people attend these dinners each month so this is a great way to get to know more people in Williamsburg.





Travel Group:

This is a group that regularly schedules and enjoys local, national and international travel opportunities. Past trips have included: A Bermuda Cruise 2017, A Quebec Cruise 2017, and most recently a trip to Washington D.C.
