Community Events

Finding Comfort Together

Navigating the loss of a loved one can often feel overwhelming and isolating. Hospice of Davidson County hosts year-round events supporting and recognizing caregivers, families, and individuals as they navigate the end-of-life journey. Our community engagement events provide an opportunity for fellowship, growth, and awareness for anyone navigating, supporting or processing a hospice journey.


Ongoing Events

Caregiver Academy

Caregiving is a challenging role that is draining and often under-appreciated. Most caregivers have to dive in with no training and little support. Held quarterly, different topics are covered in a lunch and learn environment, so you can be a confident, courageous and competent caregiver for your loved one. These free luncheons are taught by community experts and are open to those who provide care to their family members.

Registration is required. To register, call 336-242-2290 or click here to email.

Virtual Grief Support Group

Due to the ongoing pandemic, and to limit people’s exposure, we offer a “Virtual Support Group” on the second Monday of every month from 6 – 8 p.m. To register, click here to email our team of counselors.

In-Person Support Group

We are excited to begin offering an in-person support group. Our first group session will be on Wednesday, April 6th from 2-3pm. Participants must register by April 4th at 5pm. Sessions are limited to 8 participants, so once registered, please let us know if you are unable to attend.

This group is open to the community and Hospice of Davidson County families. Emily Lewitt, one of our Grief Counselors, will lead this group each month with various topics that are relevant for the needs of the group.
