The uniqueness of an individual’s personality and perception in the loss of a loved one can often make it difficult to express his or her grief. A grief support group provides an opportunity to be with other individuals who are also dealing with the grief of losing a loved one.
Second Tuesday of each month at 1:30 p.m.
Fourth Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m.
These are open groups in that new people can join at any time. The groups meet here at Unity in the Founders Wing Classroom.
The Value of a Grief Support Group
Being with other individuals who are also dealing with the loss of a loved one allows us to find support and be that support in return. We find we are not alone in our experience of constant changes in feelings – tearfulness, numbness, poor concentration, fatigue, loneliness, fear, anger and the list goes on! As we listen to others share, we can find comfort and ideas that help us. As we share, we are able to reach out and offer support to others.
