Trinity Hospice will offer "Living Without You", a four-part grief support group beginning on April 5, 2012 and continuing April 12, 19, and 26 for individuals experiencing grief through the death of a loved one. Trinity Hospice provides physical, emotional and spiritual care for end-of-life patients and their families in their place of residence, including their homes, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, hospitals or the Paula J. Baber Hospice Home.
"Mourning is a crucial part of the grieving process," explains Cindy Schuman MSW, social worker, at Trinity Hospice. "Our program encourages participants to talk about their loss and grief, so they can begin to make sense of their emotions."
While sessions are free and open to the public, they are limited to 20 people each to encourage small group discussion and the opportunity to deal constructively with feelings and practical problems resulting from loss. Presentations on a variety of grief issues will also be offered. To receive the maximum benefit from this support group, participants are asked to make a commitment to attend all four sessions.
"Living Without You" will take place on Thursdays, beginning April 5
, and continuing on April 12, 19 and 26
. Two groups are available, in the afternoon from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m
., and in the evening from 7 - 9 p.m
. All sessions will take place at Trinity Home Care, Conference Room 4 West, 802 Kenyon Road in Fort Dodge.
