Loss is an inevitable occurrence in life. Grief is the natural way we cope with loss.
Grief is often misunderstood perhaps because none of us experience grief exactly the same away. At Lake Sunapee Region VNA & Hospice, we believe that there is not a right or wrong way to cope with a loss. We also believe that grief is not a problem but rather a process. People do not “get over” grief, they “get through” it.
Facilitated by trained staff and volunteers, Lake Sunapee Region VNA & Hospice offers a number of bereavement support groups which are open to anyone in our community at no cost. Bereavement support can help to gain understanding and also gain the strength to adjust to life’s new normal.
Please Note: For the safety of everyone involved during this COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to cancel our "in person" bereavement support groups. We will continue to re-evaluate the situation and adjust as necessary. In the meantime, we do have virtual support available. Staff are also available to provide one-on-one support over the phone for people that might not be comfortable in a group setting. We appreciate your understanding.
