Grief Support Group
Mondays, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Grief is a normal process of responding to a loss. The purpose of this grief group will be to encourage participants to safely explore the emotional, physical, social, and spiritual aspects of coping with the death of a relative or friend. A main principle of this grief group will be that whatever is shared in the group will be held with the strictness of confidence. This grief support group will be an open group which means participants can join the group at any time. These sessions will take place virtually over Zoom.
Ask Me & I'll Sing!
A free service provided upon request for residents in care facilities who would like to receive a video from somebody singing a song of their choice! Please see attached flyer.
