Group Meetings to Help the Grieving
Grieving the death of a loved one can be one of the most difficult things we do. However, sharing your grief journey can help lessen the burden. Hospice Circle of Love is offering a free community grief group in February. The sessions will take place every Tuesday of that month from 5:00 to 6:00 PM at Hospice Circle of Love, 314 S. Third, Enid.
The grief group is free and open to anyone 18 and over who is suffering from the loss of a loved one. Each meeting will focus on different aspects of the grieving process. Therefore, participants are encouraged to attend all sessions. Dealing with pain, searching for meaning, discovering identity changes and ongoing support are among the topics that will be covered.
In the past participants have found that one of the greatest benefits to attending the grief group is the opportunity to connect with other people who are going through the same types of things.
Hospice Circle of Love is a not-for-profit organization providing care for terminally ill patients in the home. A team of caregivers provides physical, emotional and spiritual support. The grief groups are one area of community service the organization provides and are offered 3 times throughout the year. Circle of Love serves a 60 Mile radius of Enid.
To sign up for the Grief Group, call Dr. Matt Miles at 580-234-2273.
Hospice Circle of Love Seeking Volunteers

All hospice volunteers are required to go through a training class. Areas covered include details about job duties, the history of hospice, privacy rights, family dynamics, infection control, psychological issues surrounding death and dying, physical symptoms and more.
