Hospice of Northeast Missouri Sponsors Workshop and Grief Support Group

Hospice is offering a six-week grief support group for anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one. Topics will include understanding the grief process, personal loss history and its impact on the grief process, distinguishing between grief and mourning, dealing with insensitive people, grief’s impact on a family system, self-care and observing special occasions and the holidays. Carrol Davenport, spiritual care and bereavement coordinator, will facilitate the support group.
