Programs on grieving to start next month

Two grief sharing programs will begin in early January to help people going through the grieving process.

GriefShare groups will meet from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday and on Thursdays through March 31.

Stephen Barrett will lead a program at The Point in Seymour, and Pam and Ron Evans will serve as hosts for a program at Brownstown Christian Church.

GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences, according to a news release from Schneck Medical Center. The free program is for adults and children 14 and older. Registration is not required, and people can 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.

GriefShare seminars feature video sessions and discussion. You will gain access to GriefShare resources to help you recover from your 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.”
