Grief Support Group to Meet

February 04, 2015

McCook, Nebraska—Adults who have experienced a recent loss of a loved one are invited to join Community Hospital’s grief support group, which begins February 23.

The support group meets for eight weeks on Mondays from 4:30 to 6 p.m. February 23, March 2, 16, 30, April 13, 27, May 11, & June 1. This is a closed support group. New members will not be added after the first meeting. The support group will meet in the Community Hospital Meadowlark Conference Room A. Attendees are encouraged to attend all eight sessions.

Facilitator for the support group is Becky Mai, Social Services Director at Community Hospital. “Our hospice families were offered bereavement support with publications, phone calls, or home visits, but there is another type of support that can only be reached by meeting with and processing your grief with others who are experiencing similar situations,” said Mai. That thought is further emphasized through the support group’s theme: “Grief shared is grief diminished.”

Any adult who has experienced a recent loss of a loved one is welcome to attend, and especially adult members of families who have been served by Community Hospital’s hospice program.

Mai is a licensed social worker who has received grief support training. She will help attendees understand the grief process and cover the different stages of loss, while having the support of others who have gone through the process. The support group concludes with a special ceremony and mementos. Hanah Swanhorst, PLMHP, PMSW, Community Hospital Social Services, will assist Mai in facilitating the meetings.

There is no charge to attend. Financial support for the service is provided from the Community Hospital Health Foundation, which contributes materials for attendees, including binders, handouts, videos, journals and other support materials.

For more information, or to register, contact Mai at 308-344-8221 before February 23.
