Grief Support Group on Tuesday Evenings
Franciscan Hospice Care Lafayette will offer two 10-week grief support groups. The group is open to anyone who is grieving the loss of a loved one. The sessions will be facilitated by Anne Pigman, Hospice bereavement coordinator.
The evening group meets weekly on Tuesdays from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The group starts on Tuesday, April 23 and runs through Tuesday, June 25.
A morning session will be held weekly on Fridays from 9:30 to 11 a.m. The group starts on Friday, April 26 and runs through Friday, June 28
Some aspects of participating in a grief support group include:
- Giving information about the grieving process so people understand the changes that are happening
- Providing a safe place to share the grieving experience
- Sharing ideas on how to handle daily concerns and changes that come with grief
Materials include "Understanding Your Grief, Ten Essential Touchstones for Finding Hope and Healing Your Heart," by Alan D. Wolfelt, Ph.D. Cost for the book is $10. Participants may return the book at the end of the final session for a full refund.
