Hospice of St. Lawrence Valley’s Community Bereavement Services is offering a new 6-week grief support group starting in September.
The Navigating Grief group will meet on Tuesdays at 2:00PM via Zoom from Sept. 14th to Oct. 19th and will be facilitated by Hospice’s Bereavement Coordinator, Kate Favaro, CRPA.
The group will help participants develop healthy develop healthy coping skills and provide peer support to foster growth and healing. The sessions are structured to build upon each other and attendance to all 6 sessions is essential.
Navigating Grief is open to anyone 18 and older who has had a loved one pass away in the last 6-12 months. (The deceased individual did not have to be served by Hospice.)
Ideally, interested individuals will have already begun working on their grief and will be comfortable sharing their story and feelings with a small group.
To determine if the group will be beneficial, a screening process will occur at time of registration to ensure the interested individual equipped and ready to participate.
*Please note: Due to COVID concerns and restrictions, this group will be held exclusively via Zoom. Participants must have a valid email address and access to a computer with a webcam, smartphone, or tablet. Zoom link will be emailed to those who register by Sept. 14th.
