Ohio’s Hospice invites the community to a seven-week grief group to support adults who are grieving the loss of a loved one. The series, Faces of Grief, will meet Wednesdays from Jan. 31 through March 20 from 5:30-6:45 p.m. at the Marilyn B. and Mark E. Gustafson Center for Supportive Care at Ohio’s Hospice, 1900 Akron Road, Wooster.

David Hargrave, LSW, CCTP, CGCS, bereavement counseling professional with Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare, will lead the grief group. Topics covered during the group sessions include Myths About Grief, Common and Normal Grief Reactions, Different Grieving Styles, The Four Tasks of Mourning, Acknowledging the Secondary Losses, Factors That Influence the Grief Journey, and Taking Care of Yourself During the Journey of Grief.

During the Faces of Grief group, Hargrave will lead participants in identifying and processing the various ways grief presents itself. The Faces of Grief group provides a venue for sharing experiences, discussing key challenges and learning about positive coping strategies along the grief journey. These sessions are designed to help adult grievers understand the many aspects of grief, process the pain and adjust to a world without their loved one. It is not necessary to share openly in a group setting to receive support.

Pathways of Hope provides a variety of services to the communities served by Ohio’s Hospice. Through support from the community, Ohio’s Hospice is able to offer this and other grief-support programs free of charge to anyone in the community, regardless of whether they have received services.

While the event is free and open to anyone in the community, registration is required. Limited seats are available. To register, email PathwaysOfHope@LifeCareHospice.org or call 330-264-4899. Include your name, the name of the event, the date of the event and your phone number.

Ohio’s Hospice is a not-for-profit hospice and palliative care provider serving throughout Ohio and committed to a shared vision of strengthening and preserving community-based hospices.
