February 6, 2012
The period following the death of a loved one is a painful and lonely time of adjustment. For many people, grief can be overwhelming. Working through grief and learning to deal with it are helpful ways to deal with the loss of someone dear.
To assist people in coping with their loss, Jasper County Hospital Home Health Care & Hospice will offer a six-week bereavement series, Learning to Live Again, beginning February 20, 2012. The series will be held on Monday evenings from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. (C.S.T.) in the Medical Outreach Building at 1104 E. Grace Street in Rensselaer. A light supper will be provided.
Topics discussed will include: understanding grief; anniversaries and memories; faith, death and spirituality; role changes and stress; anger, guilt and fear; and, where do I go from here?
The series is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Marjorie Egger, Bereavement Coordinator, at (219) 866-5141, extension 2162.
