Upcoming Bereavement Support Group Offerings
 
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. They are not therapy groups, but rather support groups where individuals can share their feelings and experiences in a caring and safe environment.
 
We care about your loss and consider it a privilege to be of service.

Parents Bereavement Support Group

"After the Death of an Adult Child"

*November 13, 2018 - January 15, 2019
Tuesday Evening: 5:30 PM - 7:00 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 group will not meet on December 25th or January 1st

"After the Death of an Adult Child" will meet for 8 Tuesdays from 5:30 to 7:00 PM, beginning on November 13, 2018 and ending on January 15, 2019. We will not meet on December 25th or January 1st. This group is open to any parent who has experienced the death of an adult child. All sessions will be held at Hospice of Southern Maine's main office located at 180 US Route One in Scarborough, ME. It will be facilitated by Carol Schoneberg, Bereavement Services Manager at Hospice of Southern Maine, and experienced support group facilitator. 

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 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. 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 this questionnaire in order to hold your place in the group.
