New grief support group starting soon
DOVER-FOXCROFT — The death of a loved one is life changing. Losing someone you love can be traumatic and can stay with you for your life time. Are you grieving? If so, know that it is OK to grieve even years after a death. Grief is a normal reaction to the death of someone important to you; it can be both powerful and painful and sometimes it’s hard to share it with our family or friends.
To support those who are grieving, Pine Tree Hospice is starting a new evening bereavement support group for adults in March. Many people seek and find comfort by sharing emotions and thoughts of grief in a group setting. Others may never say a word but because the participants in the group have the shared experience of the death of a loved one, they are able to show understanding and empathy to one another.
The new group beginning in March will be held on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month in Dover-Foxcroft. Participants in the group need not have utilized other Pine Tree Hospice services; the facilitated group is for adults in the community who are experiencing grief due to a death. Please call 564-4346 for more information and to schedule a visit or register for this group.
