Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare grief support group starting

Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare’s Pathways of Hope Grief Counseling Center will offer 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 May 17 through July 5 from 5:30-6:45 p.m. at the Marilyn B. and Mark E. Gustafson Center for Supportive Care at Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare, 1900 Akron Road.

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.

The Faces of Grief group provides a venue for sharing experiences, discussing 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.

During the Faces of Grief group, Hargrave will lead participants in identifying and processing the various ways grief presents itself. It is not necessary to share openly in a group setting to receive support.

While the event is free and open to the public, registration is required. To register, email PathwaysOfHope@LifeCareHospice.org or call 330-264-4899.

Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare, a not-for-profit organization established in 1982, is an affiliate of Ohio’s Hospice that serves communities in Northeast Ohio.
