Bereavement Support Groups Help People Grieve Well

Loss is an inevitable part of life, but no one needs to go through it alone. Lake Sunapee Region VNA & Hospice (LSRVNA) offers several bereavement support groups to help community members grieve well.

“Clay Mosaics: Exploring Emotions of Grief” is part of the 2016 Art & Bereavement series. This two-part workshop will be led by artist Chris Bowditch and bereavement counselor Deb Dumond and will be held on September 8 and 15 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at LSRVNA in New London. No prior art experience is necessary.

“People at Work” is a support group specifically for widows and widowers. It meets on the second Wednesday of every month from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. at LSRVNA. A second “People at Work” group was recently added to the schedule and is held on the third Sunday of every month from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. at the Claremont Senior Center.

“Widow to Widow” is another group that allows women to gather in a supportive environment to learn about the grief process. It meets on the first Monday of every month from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at LSRVNA.

There is no fee for any of these bereavement groups. For more information or to RSVP, contact Deb Dumond at 526-4077 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
