Schneck Hospice starting program for coping with loss

Schneck Medical Center Hospice will host GriefShare, a 13-week free program open to anyone who is coping with a loss.

There will be two locations offering the GriefShare program, starting Aug. 27. The Point in Seymour will offer the program led by Stephen Barrett, and Pam and Ron Evans will host the program at Brownstown Christian Church.

The seminars feature video sessions and discussion. Attendees may gain access to GriefShare resources to help them recover from their loss and look forward to finding joy again.

“In our fast-paced society, I believe it is imperative for us to tend to our losses,” said Suzie McDonald, Schneck Hospice nurse manager. “Being with others that have had similar experiences can be extremely healing. This program is designed to be a place of hope and healing for those whose lives have been broken.”

The GriefShare group will meet from 7 to 8:30 p.m. every Thursday at The Point in Seymour or Brownstown Christian Church. If attending in Brownstown, park in Lot 1 and enter through Entrance 1.

GriefShare is a free program for adults and children 14 years and older. Registration is not required, and you may attend any or all sessions.

Topics will include living with grief, the journey of grief, the effects of grief, your family and grief and the uniqueness of grief.
