Volunteer Hospice’s grief support group starts Jan. 28

Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County offers a grief support group starting Monday, Jan. 28, running for five consecutive weeks through Feb. 25. The group meets 1-3 p.m. at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave., Sequim.

The group will be facilitated by Debby Smith, who has a 35-year career as a registered nurse and has been a hospice volunteer for 25 years. Smith brings her wealth of experience in leading grief support groups, breast cancer patient care and psychiatric medicine. 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.”

Although there is no charge, space is limited and participants must pre-register with the VHOCC office by calling 360-452-1511.

Since 1978, VHOCC has been providing free hospice services to patients and their families in Clallam County. Part of VHOCC’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.
