Schneck offers help in dealing with grief

Schneck Medical Center Hospice is hosting GriefShare, a 13-week free program open to anyone who is coping with a loss.

Schneck’s Director of Marketing and Public Relations, Stephanie Furlow, says GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will help you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Topics will include Living with Grief, the Journey of Grief, the Effects of Grief, Your Family & Grief, and the Uniqueness of Grief.

“In our fast-paced society, I believe it is imperative for us to tend to our losses” said Suzie McDonald, Schneck Hospice Nurse Manager. “Being with others that have had similar experiences can be extremely healing. This program is designed to be a place of hope and healing for those whose lives have been broken.”

The GriefShare Group will meet every Thursday, for 13 weeks starting January 7, 2016 and running through March 31, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. GriefShare seminars feature video sessions and discussion.

There will be two locations offering the program. The Point in Seymour will offer the program led by Stephen Barrett. Pam and Ron Evans will host the program at Brownstown Christian Church.

GriefShare is a free program for adults and children 14 years and older. Registration is not required. Childcare is available upon request.
