‘Looking Ahead’ an educational support group addressing the sorrows and heartaches that accompany a death and how to gather the strength to move forward will begin in May at Talbot Hospice. The six week class will address a variety of topics including; the stages of grief, typical grief reactions, how to handle holidays, coping with stress, anger, guilt and sadness and the changes in roles and relationships resulting from loss.
Through sharing stories, thoughts and feelings, we learn that we are not alone, that others are in a similar situation with similar reactions and that we feel better by reaching out to one another. Norma Trax, LCSW-C, Talbot Hospice Bereavement Coordinator will lead the group.
There is no requirement for your loved one to have been a hospice patient and there is no charge for the six-week support group. Meetings will be on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 pm in the quiet bereavement room located upstairs in Talbot Hospice House. Dates: May 5, 12, 19 and June 2, 9 and 16. Please call 410-822-6681 to register.
