Hospice Life Care, a program of Holyoke VNA, is pleased to be offering a support group for those who have experienced the death of someone close.
The group will be facilitated by Bereavement Counselor Cary Quigley, M. Ed., starting on September 26, 2018. The sessions will run for 8 consecutive weeks, ending November 14, 2018. They will be held at the South Hadley Senior Center/COA, 45 Dayton Street, South Hadley, MA 01075.
2018 Fall Bereavement Support Group Now Forming
Grief is not an experience we can wish away by deciding to move on. Grief has its own timeline. It can show up in many ways, and can leave us unsure of our next steps.
Ms. Quigley will lead the group through:
- conversations examining common responses to grief such as confusion, loss of concentration, fatigue, irritability, fear, or relief.
- discussions about handling new and unfamiliar responsibilities; such as maintaining a home, handling the family finances, caring for a family member, or learning how to shop for one.
- sharing stories with others in similar circumstances.
We hope you can join us.
Please contact Ms. Cary Quigley at (413) 887-5552 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information or to sign up.
We look forward to sharing this meaningful experience with you.
