Bereavement Services

Hospice of Kona provides individual counseling, group support and memorial events designed for those who have experienced the death of a loved one. Our approach embraces the mind, body, and soul through a variety of holistic programs. All services are offered free of charge to youth and adults, hospice families and community members impacted by the loss of someone close to them. We do, however, welcome donations.

It is our hope that we may help you:

  • Understand your own unique grief process
  • Uncover ways to deal with intense emotions
  • Discover a place to talk about your loved one
  • Find something to do in this world with your loss
