JUNEAU - Hospice and Home Care of Juneau will be starting the next eight-week bereavement support group on Monday, Feb. 18, running through April 7. This is a very supportive group of six to 12 people who come together each Monday evening to share their stories of life with a partner, parent, sibling, child, grandparent, grandchild or friend; of their loss experience; and the new life following the death of that person. It is a place to grieve with support, guidance, and creative activities to assist in forming a treasure chest of memories.
There is a suggested donation of $80 for the eight sessions. We also have a sliding scale, and no one will be turned away for inability to pay.
To register, call the hospice office at 463-6111. Groups tend to fill quickly, so please send your deposit to hold your place as soon as possible. You may mail a check or call the office to pay by credit card. Your payment will guarantee your seat at the table.
For more information, call bereavement counselor Jean Jasmine at 463-6134.
