Hospice of Evangelical Offers ‘Life After Loss’ group support

LEWISBURG — Coping the loss of a loved one is never easy and that’s why Hospice of Evangelical and Community Health Wellness is offering a six-week educational bereavement group called, “Life After Loss.”

The Life After Loss program helps participants learn coping techniques to deal with grief and loss — attendance at all six classes is strongly encouraged. Anyone 18 or older who has experienced the loss of a loved one is invited to attend. Facilitated by Cindy Moyer, LSW, Hospice of Evangelical, the program is most effective for those who have been living with loss for longer than six months.

The program is held from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesdays, Sept. 19 through Oct. 24, at Hospice of Evangelical, 235 Hospital Drive. There is a one-time fee, scholarships are available. Registration is requested and the program requires six to 20 participants.

The sessions cover introductions and loss history, the normal grief process, depression and anger, guilt and forgiveness, letting go and saying goodbye and taking care of yourself.

To register, call 570-522-2157 by Sept. 14, 2018.

The comprehensive program helps patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families make the most of the time they have together.
