Free eight-week grief and loss group offered

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Often, when we lose a loved one, we don’t know where to turn for emotional support.

Hospice Services of Lake County’s Community Bereavement program recognizes that there is no single way through grief.

The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the feelings of isolation for many suffering from loss. In response, the organization offers a variety of services to support individuals as they navigate life after the loss of a loved one.

The “Journey of Grief” is a free, eight-week grief and loss group that will meet Thursdays, 5 to 7 p.m., starting Thursday, March 18.

The group sessions are available for adults who have experienced the death of a loved one recently or in the past.

Groups will be offered virtually by Zoom. Individualized instruction on the use of Zoom will be provided before the group starts.

Education is provided about grief, mourning, what is “normal,” and general support toward healing. In group, unique stories and memories of loved ones are honored.

Group sessions are structured with combined instruction and discussion in a safe environment by specially trained staff and volunteer facilitators. Weekly topics are presented in a meaningful sequence, so attendance at all sessions is essential.

Examples of topics covered in groups include: setting our intention to heal, dispelling misconceptions about grief, exploring personal feelings of loss, seeking resolution, and self-care.

For additional information and/or to enroll, call Kathleen Bradley at 707-263-6222, Extension 123.

Hospice Services of Lake County provides the highest quality medical, emotional and spiritual care to help patients and their families navigate their end-of-life journeys.
