SOMC To Offer Grief Support Group

Southern Ohio Medical Center Hospice Services will offer a spring “Picking Up The Pieces” support group to help those grieving the loss of a loved one. The group will meet for six weeks, beginning April 5 and will meet every Tuesday for the duration of the program. Meetings will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Gibson building located on SOMC’s East Campus, 2201 25th Street in Portsmouth. The support group is free and open to the community. “We hope to help those grieving better understand the emotions and process of grieving and to be an encouragement for them,” said Susan Goins, bereavement coordinator for SOMC Hospice Services. Space is limited and registration is necessary. For more information and to register, please call Susan at 740-356-2676.
