LACONIA — Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice is offering free 7-week Bereavement Support Groups in two locations beginning in mid – late September.
One group will meet in Laconia on Wednesdays and the other group will meet in Wolfeboro on Thursdays, specific times to be determined. Each group consists of a series of 1 ½ hour meetings held each week for 7 weeks.
Support Groups give people the opportunity to discuss and learn ways of coping with their loss, to gain the support of others in safe and caring ways, and to learn about the grief process. Although grief is a unique experience through which each person finds his or her own way, there are common threads we all share when going through grief.
