Lake Regional Health System is starting a new support group for people experiencing grief. The first meeting is 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 14, in the hospital's third floor conference rooms.
"This monthly support group is for people dealing with grief caused by various losses, including death, divorce, loss of a home and other difficult life events," said Billye Bennett, R.N., Lake Regional's education coordinator. "The sessions are designed to help people move through their grief. Participants will receive education, support and companionship."
The grief support group will meet at 6 p.m. on the second Tuesday of most months. Lake Regional Health System also will continue facilitating the New Horizons Widows' Group. Members of this group meet regularly for fun activities and day trips. For more information on either support group, call 573.348.8222.
Lake Regional hosts several other support groups, most of which focus on a health condition, such as cancer, heart disease and COPD. Find a full listing of support groups, as well as screenings, health talks and other events, at www.lakeregional.com/events.
