Volunteer Hospice’s grief support group starts March 12

Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County offers a grief support group this month.

A grief recovery group facilitated by Debby Smith starts Monday, March 12, and runs from 1-3 p.m. on Mondays for five consecutive weeks at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave., Sequim.

Smith has a 35-year career as a registered nurse and has been a hospice volunteer for 25 years, bringing her experience in leading grief support groups, breast cancer patient care and psychiatric medicine to the series.

Her goal is to “provide an atmosphere for open dialogue about the death and grief process and lessen the fear and anxiety associated with loss.”

Four more groups are scheduled in the coming months: starting dates in Sequim are July 9 and Oct. 22; and May 23 and Sept. 11 in Port Angeles.

Though there is no charge, space is limited and a phone interview is required for registration. For more information, or to schedule a phone interview and register, call the VHOCC office 360-452-1511.

Part of the organization’s mission is to offer grief support groups, not only to families of hospice patients, but to anyone in the community who has experienced the death of a loved one.

Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County is celebrating its 40th year of providing no-charge hospice services to patients and their families. Visit www.vhocc.org.
