PLYMOUTH - Pemi-Baker Hospice and Home Health will be offering two new Grief and Loss Support Groups, be- ginning on Tuesday, July 5, 2022. The groups will deal with issues pertaining to loss and grief as these experiences impact the lives of individu- als. The six sessions will draw on insights from the works of David Kessler, Kenneth Doka, and Alan Wolfelt, three leading voices in the area of grief stud- ies.
There will be TWO groups:
A morning group will meet at the Plymouth Regional Senior Center from 11:00am through 12:30pm. We can accommo- date TEN IN-PERSON partic- ipants. Group members will sit socially-distanced from one an- other. Masks are NOT required, but are recommended for those who wish to be cautious. We can also accommodate persons virtually via ZOOM.
There will also be a late af- ternoon group from 5:30pm through 7:00pm. The late af- ternoon group is ZOOM-acces- sible ONLY.
There is no cost for partici- pating in these groups, though participants MUST pre-register by contacting Guy Tillson, Be- reavement Coordinator, at gtill- or by calling 603 536-2232. Each group will go for six sessions. The size of each group and the energy gen- erated by discussion and sharing determines the length of each session. Though we allow for
an hour and a half, we normally go for about an hour.
Pemi-Baker also offers a monthly support group for at-home caregivers. This group meets on the FIRST WEDNESDAY of each month at 10:00am. We can accom- modate FIVE IN-PERSON participants in the Conference Room at Pemi-Baker Hospice and Home Health, 101 Boulder Point Drive, Suite 3, in Plym- outh.
