The death of a loved one from COVID-19 can be unexpected and traumatic for family members and friends. Survivors are often unable to honor their loved one at a traditional funeral or memorial, and opportunities are limited for in-person counseling or support groups. Coronavirus-related uncertainty and isolation can intensify feelings of pain and loneliness.

VITAS offers weekly phone-in and Zoom support groups for those coping with a COVID-19 loss. Learn coping strategies to process your loss with others who understand and can empathize with your experience.
