Hospice of Evangelical Offers “Life After Loss” Group Support

July 28, 2017


Coping with the loss of a loved one is never easy and that’s why Hospice of Evangelical and Community Health Wellness are 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 age 18 or older who has experienced the loss of a loved one is invited to attend. Facilitated by Christine Gessner, MSW, Hospice of Evangelical, the program is most effective for those who have been living with loss for longer than six months.

The program is being held Wednesdays, starting September 20 through October 25, from 1-3 pm at Hospice of Evangelical located at 235 Hospital Drive, Lewisburg, for a one-time fee of $20 per participant (scholarships are available). Pre-registration is requested and the program requires a minimum of six participants to be held and is limited to 20 participants.

The sessions by week cover the following topics: introductions and loss history, the normal grief process, depression and anger, guilt and forgiveness, letting go and saying goodbye, and taking care of yourself: new beginnings.

To register, call Hospice of Evangelical at 570-522-2955 by Friday, September 15, 2017.
The Hospice of Evangelical program provides for the emotional and spiritual needs of hospice patients and their family members, offering support even after the patient’s passing. The comprehensive program helps patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families make the most of the time they have left together. This is made possible through nurses who are solely dedicated to the specialty of end of life care. Hospice’s philosophy of care emphasizes symptom management and adding quality of life to each day.
