Guthrie to Host Community Bereavement Support Group in Towanda

December 14, 2018

Guthrie Hospice will offer a five-week Community Bereavement Support Group in Towanda, Pa. on Wednesdays beginning Feb. 6. 

The group will meet in the Conference Room at Guthrie Hospice office, 421 Tomahawk Rd, Towanda. Sessions will be held from 3 - 4:30 p.m. each Wednesday from Feb. 6 - March 6.

Rev. Larry Jennings Jr., Chaplain and Bereavement Coordinator, and Karen Robinson, Hospice Social Worker, will facilitate the group.  Topics will include the grieving process, coping skills and communication and stress management.  The Community Bereavement Support Group is an outreach community service sponsored by Guthrie Hospice that is intended for anyone who has experienced a loss. 

The phases of grief are universal; the way each person passes through each phase is different. Attendees of the Community Bereavement Support Group will find support from others who have suffered a loss and will know that they are not alone in the grieving process. Please call Guthrie Hospice at 1-800-598-6155 to register for the group, or with any questions about grief or the Bereavement Support Group.
