When a loved one dies, you may experience a wide range of emotions, from confusion to anger to sadness. All these feelings are normal. You may also feel isolated or alone — even if you have family members or loved ones who are grieving right alongside you. Though it is often expected that grief “eases” after one year, for many people grief continues beyond a year.
The Beth Donovan Hospice is offering bereavement support for adults who find they are still grieving beyond the one year mark, we refer to this as “Continued Grief”. People often find grief support groups help them feel less alone. Hearing from and connecting with others who have faced similar experiences can be a welcome reminder that healing is possible. This support group will be facilitated by trained bereavement volunteers and aims to provide participants with helpful advice, such as coping strategies and ways to practice self-care.
The group will meet at the Beth Donovan Hospice from 5:30-7 pm on the second Wednesday of each month beginning in March and running through August. Registration is required.
