Talbot Hospice Offers New Support Groups


Talbot Hospice has announced the addition of three new grief support groups to its roster. All support groups are free of charge and open to the public, whether or not your loved one was served by Talbot Hospice.

Beginning in September an eight-week group called “Looking Ahead” will be offered for anyone in the community who is grieving the death of a loved one. Participants will have two options to choose from – Wednesdays from 1 – 3 p.m. or Thursdays from 6 – 8 p.m. Wednesday dates are September 5, 12, 19, 26 and October 3, 10, 17, 24. Thursday dates are September 6, 13, 20, 27, and October 4, 11, 18, 25. Registration is required.

In October, a four-week group called “Shattering the Silence” will offer support, education, and resources to families impacted by a loved one’s death from suicide or overdose. This group will meet every Tuesday in October (2, 9, 16, and 23) from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

“Navigating the Holidays in the Midst of Grief” will be offered Friday, November 2, 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. This grief workshop will offer coping strategies, ideas, suggestions and grief education on how to navigate the holidays which can be challenging, especially during the first year after the death of a loved one.
