OAKHURST – For those grieving the death of a loved one, Hinds Hospice Center for Grief and Healing has announced the addition of a new grief support group in the foothills.
“It can be very helpful and supportive to meet with others who also have experienced the loss of a loved one,” say the experts.
Starting Tuesday, Oct. 1 and running through Jan. 14, 2014, the group meets from 6 – 7 p.m., twelve times over fourteen weeks.
“Support groups provide an opportunity to share stories, to simply listen, to encourage others to be encouraged, and to have our feelings supported by the facilitator and group members,” according to organizers.
“We look forward to welcoming you to our Grief Support Program and hope that you find it supportive during this difficult time.”
The support group convenes at the Oakhurst VA–Veterans CBOC at 40597 Westlake Drive. While they meet at the VA, this is not a VA-sponsored group and the fee is an out-of-pocket expense.
Group meetings start Oct. 1, with a break for fall and winter holidays. They will not meet on Nov. 26 or Dec. 24.
Advance registration is required; the cost is $25 per person. Scholarships are available.
To register or for more information please call (559) 248-8579.
