Franklin VNA & Hospice to begin a grief support group on May 13

FRANKLIN - Franklin VNA & Hospice will be hosting a grief support group on six consecutive Wednesday's, from May 13 through June 17 from 4-6 p.m. at the VNA office on 75 Chestnut Street/

The purpose of the group is to offer grieving individuals a caring environment in which to discuss their loss and grief among people who can empathize with their emotions. The session will be facilitated by Reverend Tobias Nyatsambo, Hospice Chaplain and Rebecca Herr, Hospice Volunteer. According to Reverend Nyatsambo, "Grief is the greatest pain in life. You cannot get over it, get under it, or get around it. The only way out of it is to go through it. When we experience the death of someone close to us, it is natural and very normal to grieve our loss." 

Grief lasts longer than most people expect and people who are grieving may need more support than family and friends can provide. It is the goal of Franklin VNA's grief support program to help those who are experiencing grief from the loss of a loved one to understand their feelings and to work through them in a safe and supportive environment.

"One of the most important factors in healing from loss is the support of other people. Even people who are usually reticent about their emotions need to share them when grieving" continues Reverend Nyatsambo." I grieve support group can help the bereaved share their grief and loss, which makes the burden easier to carry. People who are grieving the loss of a loved one can feel very alone and isolated. Sharing their sorrow with others who have experienced a similar loss can help. A grief support group provides a safe place for people to face their feelings and express them, knowing that the other people in the group will listen and understand because they, too, are struggling with the same emotions. "

Pre-registration is required. To register, or for more information, call Nancy at 934-3454.
