Schneck Medical Center Hospice is offering GriefShare, a free, 13-week program open to anyone who is coping with a loss.
GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences, according to a news release from the Seymour hospital.
There will be two locations offering the program:
Seymour: The Point, 311 Myers Lane. Stephen Barrett will be the host.
Brownstown: Brownstown Christian Church, 702 W. Spring St. Pam and Ron Evans will serve as hosts.
The groups will meet from 7 to 8:30 p.m every Thursday for 13 weeks, starting April 6 and running through June 29.
Topics will include living with grief, the journey of grief, the effects of grief, your family and grief and the uniqueness of grief.
Seminars feature video sessions and discussion. Participants will gain access to GriefShare resources to help them recover from their loss and look forward to finding joy again.
“In our fast-paced society, I believe it is imperative for us to take time to grieve” said Barrett, Schneck Hospice chaplain. “Being with others that have had similar experiences can be extremely healing. This program is designed to be a place of hope and healing for those whose lives have been broken.”
GriefShare is a free program for adults and children 14 years and older. Registration is not required. People may attend any or all sessions. Childcare is available upon request.
