Support Groups

Support Groups provide a caring place where people with similar needs come together to learn and support one another.


To slow the spread of the Coronavirus/COVID-19, Kaiser Permanente Continuing Care Services has temporarily postponed all in-person Support Groups. Some support groups below are now offering online meetings. We will open the remaining groups back up as soon as it is safe for our members and our staff. Thank you for your understanding.




Bereavement Support Group (Hospice Department 619-641-4100)

Bereavement Support Groups are free and open to all Kaiser Permanente members and the community. No appointment is necessary; simply show up at the location and time for the group you wish to attend. A Hospice staff social worker facilitates each of our ongoing groups and the specific structure of each group varies according to the facilitator.
