Grief, bereavement peer support group beginning April 5
If local residents need help coping with the death of a loved one, support is available. Members of the Tantramar Hospice Palliative Care Organization (THPCO) Inc. are facilitating a grief and bereavement peer support group in Sackville beginning on Thursday evening, April 5, and running for seven weeks.
The group’s goals include providing information, being supportive and understanding, and helping each other work toward the positive resolution of grief in a confidential and safe environment. There is no fee for this group.
This grief and bereavement peer support group is open to anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one, including those where the death was sudden.
Talking about grief with others is a good way to help come to terms with a loss.
Although anyone is welcome, it is advised that people who are grieving a very recent loss - within the past two months - wait until the next group is offered.
In the meantime, one-on-one peer support is available, provided by THPCO volunteers.
Anyone wishing to know more details can contact Donna at 506-379-2704, Audrey at 506536-1064 or Lesley at 506-536-0824.
The THPCO is a local non-profit organization that advocates for, and supports the provision of, hospice palliative care services and programs in the Tantramar region.
