Grieving is a process of learning how to live in a changed world. When someone we love has died, or a relationship has ended, we are challenged to relearn how to be with ourselves. We are faced with coping and managing painful feelings, and must create new systems of meaning that allow us to live with joy and purpose in spite of our losses.
Many people find it extremely useful to process the difficult feelings of grief in a group setting. Often family members, friends, and co-workers find it difficult to speak about the deceased loved one, and thus meeting with other bereaved individuals who are coping with similar life circumstances helps to reduce isolation and increase hopefulness.
VNA Health Group Bereavement Support Group meets the SECOND and FOURTH Monday of each month, February through April, 2017 from 11:00 to 12:00 PM at the Monmouth County Library, 1040 Rt 35, Shrewsbury NJ. Attendees can drop in or join multiple dates. If you have any questions, please call Janet Freed at 845-642-0935.
