Hope Community Care, part of the HopeHealth family of services, announced new community bereavement support groups to be held this winter in Brockton, Falmouth and Hyannis. HopeHealth, formerly Hospice & Palliative Care of Cape Cod, is a non-profit healthcare organization providing medical care, care management and support services to people living with serious illness.
All groups provide a safe, confidential and supportive setting for anyone experiencing loss or grief. Programs are led by licensed professionals from Hope Community Care with specialized training and extensive experience. The new groups will focus on Adult Loss of a Parent, Loss of a Spouse/Partner and Young Widows/Widowers.
“Those who are experiencing loss have stories that are unique and feelings that are universal,” said Ann E. Geagan, Director of Hope Community Care. “It’s helpful to have a safe and supportive group setting in which to share stories and experiences while gaining support from personal connections.”
Advanced registration is required. Please call (508) 957-0268 for any of the groups or for more information. All groups are free and open to the public. New members can join within the first two weeks of the group’s official start. More information can be found at HopeHealthCo.org.
