Bereavement Programs

Support for Those Suffering Loss

If you’ve lost a loved one, it’s important to know you’re not alone. At Hi-Desert Medical Center, we offer group support to help you through the grieving process.

Bereavement Support Group

Hi-Desert Hospice hosts a bereavement support group for those whose loved ones have died. Each meeting provides a safe, comfortable setting to navigate through the difficulties that often accompany the death of a loved one. Together, we’ll explore and discover the most helpful ways to live with grief. Meetings are facilitated by Gloria Beetle, B.S.W., hospice social worker. She can be reached at (760) 366-6427

Meetings take place on the first and third Tuesday of each month:

  • 2–3:30 p.m. at Faith Lutheran Church (6336 Hallee Road, Joshua Tree) 
  • 5:30–7 p.m. at Hi-Desert Home Health and Hospice Office (63484 Chickasaw Road, Joshua Tree)
