Understanding Grief: This nine-week session hosted by Harrison Medical Center is designed to provide education and support for adults grieving the death of a loved one.
Participants meet with others who have experienced a similar loss and explore ways to cope with the changes. The group will focus on the general task of grieving, consider ways of providing self-care, and create an environment for mutual learning. Group sessions are informal, supportive, and informative.
Each session builds on materials from the previous sessions, so attendance to all nine is highly encouraged.
Harrison’s chaplains provide non-denominational spiritual support.
Harrison social workers are available to assist with support and information about community resources.
Harrison’s Palliative Care Services can provide support and information regarding bereavement. For those who may seek a lasting memory, an impression can be made of a loved one’s hand. Ask a palliative care specialist for details.
