Hospice of San Juan To Offer Grief and Loss Support Group

Hospice of San Juan is sponsoring a Grief Support Group for anyone who has lost a family member or friend starting Friday, Jan. 20, 9 - 10:30 a.m. meeting every first and third Friday of the month. There will be total of six sessions, finishing on April 6.

Everyone experiences grief when a loved one die. A vacuum is created in the absence of that person, and often many questions arise like what’s next, or who am I now in this life? Thoughts and feelings may seem off kilter, simple decisions like what to eat seem difficult. These are normal reactions to loss. Mourning is a natural and necessary process, but you don’t have to do it alone.

The support group will provide a time to talk and share common experiences, and provide information and tools for dealing with the grief process, along with other topics of interest to the participants.

Lenore Bayuk, who has been a psychosocial nurse specialist for 37 years and a nurse for 43 years, will facilitate the group.

Sign up by call 378-3636, ext. 1 or call Madelyn Busse 375-6052 with any questions.
