Franklin VNA Offering Grief Support Group

FRANKLIN —  Franklin VNA & Hospice will be hosting a grief support group on six consecutive Mondays, from October 21 through November 25.

The purpose of this group is to offer grieving individuals a caring environment in which to discuss their loss and sorrow among people who can empathize with their emotions. The sessions will be facilitated by Rev. Scott Secrest, Hospice Chaplain, Rev. Tobias Nyatsambo, Hospice Chaplain and Rebecca Herr, Hospice Volunteer.

It is the goal of Franklin VNA's grief support group to help those 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", said Rev. Nyatsambo.

A grief support group, Rev. Secrest added, "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 similar emotions. "

The six sessions will be take place from 4:30-6 p.m. and will be held at the VNA office on 75 Chestnut St, Franklin.

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