Golden Belt Home Health & Hospice (GBHH&H) will sponsor a new Thursday afternoon grief support group in Great Bend from March 13 through May 1. It will meet each Thursday from 1:30 to 3 p.m. in Conference Room 103 of the Medical Building at 3520 Lakin in Great Bend. Use the Lincoln Street entrance.Hospice Chaplains Angela DeVore and John Grummon, and Social Worker Cathy Soeken will co-facilitate the support group. “Group members will provide support and healing for one another,” DeVore said. “Grief work requires a whole new ordering of one’s life and understanding. It is helpful to share with others in the process of finding your ‘new normal.’”Soeken noted that all discussions are confidential. “Participants can share their feelings, thoughts and experiences,” she said. “Sharing memories and photos, poetry or other significant mementos is encouraged too. This is a good way to allow other group members the opportunity to know more about the loved ones being mourned.”Anyone interested in attending the grief support group may contact DeVore, Grummon or Soeken for further details by calling 620-792-8171.GBHH&H is part of the St. Rose Ambulatory & Surgery Center family. St. Rose is part of Centura Health, which connects individuals and families across western Kansas and Colorado with more than 6,000 physicians, 15 hospitals, seven senior-living communities, physician practices and clinics, and home-care and hospice services.
