Mt. Hood Hospice offers bereavement support groups virtually
Bereavement coordinator Laura Lirette at Mt. Hood Hospice is preparing to offer a new host of educational and social workshops.
The week of Jan. 24, Lirette will start hosting "Breathe, Move, Write" sessions on Tuesdays from 2-4 p.m., "Grief and Complicated Circumstances" workshops on Tuesdays from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and "Living with Grief" sessions on Thursdays from 2-3:30 p.m. All workshops will be hosted online via Zoom and are free of charge to attend.
"If you know people who are grieving the death of a loved one or caring for someone who has a serious medical condition, please share information about our community groups," Lirette said.
These three sessions are part of six-week programs.
There is one in-person event every week, weather permitting, at Meinig Memorial Park. Here attendees walk in fellowship with one another and participate in reflective exercises. Registration is required as the group is limited to 10 participants.
There are also social hour sessions available online. The "Living with Grief" social hour sessions are from noon to 1 p.m. Mondays, "Caregivers Together" social hour is from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Tuesdays and the "Grief and Complicated Circumstances" social hour is from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursdays.
