Hospice Touch of Tomah Memorial Hospital has scheduled a grief support series to help people who have lost a family member or friend.
A six-week group grief support and education series is scheduled each Tuesday beginning Oct. 3 and running through Nov. 7 from 1-3 p.m. and 5-7 p.m. at the Hospice/Palliative Care offices at 601 Straw St. in Tomah. Participants can choose either of the afternoon times.
Hospice Touch spiritual care and bereavement coordinator Debbie Warthan said the series, titled “The Journey Through Grief,” will define grief and look at helping people cope on a daily basis.
“It helps to know that you’re not alone; that other people are feeling and thinking the same way that you are,” said Warthan. “We understand that it takes courage to come, and we want to let people know that they can participate in whatever level they are comfortable with.”
There is no charge for the program, however, Warthan said officials are asking participants to register by calling Hospice Touch at 608-374-0250 in Tomah by Monday, Sept. 25.
