'Understanding Grief' Support Group Offered

posted on Thursday, June 22, 2017 in General

Losing a loved one is indescribable to someone who has not felt the loss of death. Hospice of Spencer Hospital's professional team understands the tragedy of losing a loved one and they identify with the difficult decisions and emotions that the person left behind faces.

To help people cope with the death of a loved one, Hospice of Spencer Hospital is offering a 6-week Understanding Grief Support Group. The group will meet each Tuesday evening beginning July 25 through August 29 from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. at Spencer Public Library.

“During your time with the Understanding Grief Support Group, you will uncover techniques to help begin the healing process,” commented Chelsea Reed, social worker for Hospice of Spencer Hospital. “We will help guide you and support you in your healing process.  This group offers hope for the future in a caring setting.”

Once the sessions start, the group will be closed to new participants. The course will be offered at various times each year to new groups. To register, please contact Hospice of Spencer Hospital at (712) 264-6380.
