— Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice will of­fer a sup­port group for par­ents who have ex­pe­ri­enced the death of a child. The first meet­ing is sched­uled for Mon­day, May 8, 6 to 8 p.m., at the Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice Hope and Heal­ing Cen­ter, 255 Comet Drive in Cen­tre­ville. The group will meet ev­ery Mon­day for six weeks. Par­tic­i­pants are asked to com­mit to at­tend­ing all six ses­sions in or­der to ben­e­fit the most from the group.

The grief sup­port group will be fa­cil­i­tated by Rhonda Knotts, MCC, be­reave­ment co­or­di­na­tor for Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice.

“We know that the death of a child is one of the most dif­fi­cult ex­pe­ri­ences a par­ent will ever face,” said Knotts. “This sup­port group be­comes a safe place for par­ents to un­der­stand that they are not alone in their grief and to ap­pre­ci­ate that ev­ery­one grieves dif­fer­ently.”

Ad­vance reg­is­tra­tion is pre­ferred. A $25 en­roll­ment fee cov­ers the cost of ma­te­ri­als. No one will be turned away based on in­abil­ity to pay.
