IU Health La Porte VNA To Offer Bereavement Support Group

IU Health La Porte VNA Services has announced that it will soon be hosting a free bereavement support group series to the public.

The series, entitled “Moving from Grief to Hope and Healing,” will be held every Wednesday in January at the First Church of God, located at 2020 E. Lincolnway in La Porte. The Hospice Chaplain will facilitate the group, which will meet from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 9, 16, 23, and 30.

The support group will focus on the grieving process, and those who have experienced a recent loss or are unable to work through their grief are encouraged to attend. The group will also offer the support of others going through a similar experience.

The support group is confidential and informal. Attendees are provided the opportunity to speak or simply listen, and offer support through sharing of experiences and coping strategies.

The support group is free, but registration is required. To register, call (800) 854-6008. Funding is provided by the La Porte Hospital Foundation.
