‘Grief Group’ formed by Hospice San Juan, series of eight weekly meetings to begin Jan. 15

Hospice of San Juan is sponsoring a Grief Support Group for anyone who has lost a family member or a friend.

The group will meet each Tuesday, beginning Jan. 15, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., with eight weekly meetings, concluding March 5. Meetings will be facilitated by Friday Harbor counselor Lenore Bayuk.

Participants will be offered a time to talk and to share common experiences, ask questions and participate in discussions. Hospice will also provide information and tools designed for dealing with the process of grief, as well as with other topics of interest to participants.

Meetings of the support group are offered free of charge, thanks to a grant from San Juan Island Community Foundation, in partnership with PeaceHealth and other partners.

To sign up, contact Bayuk at (360) 378-3636, ext. 1. For information, contact Hospice Grief Support coordinators Madelyn Busse,, or Margaret Langlie,
