More than 110 courses and workshops are being offered over four terms, day, evening, online, and hybrid (half of the classes meet in class and half are online for convenience and flexibility to move at one's own pace, yet get to meet and know the professors personally).

"LRCC's administration, faculty, and staff know that students come home in the summer and desire to 'get a jump' on their degrees and certificates from other institutions of higher learning," says LRCC Vice President of Student Affairs, Dr. Larissa Baia. "Transferability of LRCC courses is at an all-time high across the country and continues to improve."

Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice is offering 7-week Bereavement Support Groups

LACONIA — Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice is offering 7-week Bereavement Support Groups in two locations beginning in April. One group will meet in Laconia on Wednesdays from 4 p.m. pm and the other group will meet in Wolfeboro on Thursdays at 4 p.m. Each group consists of a series of 1½ 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.

Pre-registration is required / The support group is offered free of charge.
To register for the group or for more information, call or email James Miller, Hospice Bereavement Coordinator to schedule an appointment.
