Upcoming Bereavement Support Group Offerings
 

 After the Death of an Adult Child Parents Bereavement Support Group 

  January 9, 2018 - February 27, 2018
Tuesday Daytime: 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: Hospice of Southern Maine
180 US Route One, Scarborough, ME 04074
 
We ask that people try to attend every session if possible.
 
This Tuesday daytime Scarborough group will meet for 8 consecutive Tuesdays from 2:00 to 3:30 PM, beginning on January 9th and ending on February 27, 2018. The group will be held at the main office of Hospice of Southern Maine located at 180 US Route One in Scarborough, ME. It will be facilitated by Carol Schoneberg, an experienced support group facilitator. Our bereavement support groups assist individuals who may be dealing with issues of sadness, grief, depression, anger, guilt or any other related feelings accompanying the death of a loved one. This is not a therapy group, but rather a support group where individuals can share their feelings and experiences in a caring and safe environment.
 
The death of one's child is considered "a death out of sequence" - we do not expect our children to die before we do. Losing a child at any age is something no parent ever wants to face, but the parent who loses an adult child does not always receive the same degree of acknowledgement and support as the parent who experiences the death of a younger child. While parents never "get over" the death of a child, some have found a way to understand that the depth of pain is a measure of the depth of their love, and they have eventually learned how to live with the loss in a way that honors their child. This group is open to any parent who has experienced the death of an adult child. Participants will have the opportunity to share with a skilled group facilitator and other surviving parents. 

This closed 8 week session, limited to 12 participants, is offered at no charge. Advance registration is required. Complete and return the attached questionnaire in order to hold your place in the group. 

We care about your loss and consider it a privilege to be of service. To register for the group or for additional information, please contact Carol Schoneberg at
