Grief Support Meetings
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 for Franciscan Hospice Care.
The evening group meets weekly on Tuesdays from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The group starts on Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2018 and runs through Tuesday, March 13, 2018.
A morning session will be held weekly on Fridays from 9:30 to 11 a.m. This group starts on Friday, Jan. 12, 2018 and runs through Friday, March 16, 2018.
Some aspects of participating in a grief support group include:
- Receiving information about the grieving process so people understand the changes that are happening;
- Providing a safe place to share struggles and learn from others; and
- Sharing ideas on how to handle daily concerns and challenges that come with loss.
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.
Registration is required and can be made by calling Pigman at (765) 423-6911.
