Knowledgeable counselors lead bereavement groups and workshops on the grieving process, with a professional and personal understanding that grieving is not a one-and-done event but more of a journey that will have its successes and difficulties.
A focus has been determined for each virtual bereavement group and workshop. Each meeting will work towards expanding participants’ acceptance of feelings, education of coping skills and knowledge that they are not on this journey alone. The format and length of each group varies, there is a right group for everyone regardless of which stage of grief they are currently experiencing.
Delaware Hospice’s bereavement groups, including virtual ones, are free and open to the community.
