VNA to start bereavement support groups

LACONIA/WOLFEBORO — Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice is offering 7-week Bereavement Support Groups in two locations beginning in June. One group will meet in Laconia on Wednesdays and the other group will meet in Wolfeboro on Tuesdays.

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 shared among individuals who are experiencing grief.

Pre-registration is required. To register for the group or for more information, call or email James Miller, Hospice Bereavement Coordinator to schedule an appointment call 524-8444 x 2390 (Laconia) / 603-569-2729 x 3256 (Wolfeboro) or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
