Delaware Hospice will hold a six-week support group for widows, widowers and life partners from 5:30 to 7 p.m., Tuesdays, April 9 through May 14, at the Delaware Hospice Center, 100 Patriots Way, Milford.
Many people find that a group experience just for those who have lost a husband, wife or life partner is a very beneficial way to give and receive support. Much more about grief is normal than many people think, and there are known ways to cope that can be learned. Loneliness can be lessened by making new friends who have had similar losses.
Topics include what to expect when grieving the loss of a very special person, ways to cope with grief, ways to prepare for special days and holidays, the complexities which include support and conflict regarding family dynamics, the significance of beliefs and expectations for healing, and ways to live into one’s future with a renewed sense of purpose and hope.
There is no fee for this service, which is provided as a community outreach by Delaware Hospice.
Registration is requested by Thursday, April 4, by contacting Midge DiNatale, bereavement counselor at firstname.lastname@example.org or 302-416-0581.
