Guthrie Hospice to Hold Community Bereavement Support Group

Sep 16, 2016

Guthrie Hospice will offer a five-week Community Bereavement Support Group each Thursday Oct. 6 through Nov. 3 at Guthrie’s Sayre campus. The group will meet in the 2 North Conference Room at Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, Pa. from 6 - 7:30 p.m.

Rev. Jeffrey Wilkinson, Chaplain and Bereavement Coordinator, and Karen Robinson, Hospice Social Worker, will facilitate the group.  Topics will include the grieving process, coping skills and communication and stress management.  The Community Bereavement Support Group is an outreach community service sponsored by Guthrie Hospice that is intended for anyone who has experienced a loss. 

The phases of grief are universal; the way each person passes through each phase is different. Attendees of the Community Bereavement Support Group will find support from others who have suffered a loss and will know that they are not alone in the grieving process. Please call Guthrie Hospice at 1-800-598-6155 to register for the group, or with any questions about grief or the Bereavement Support Group.
