When you are going through struggles, it is helpful to know you are not alone. Support groups provide non-professional peer support to build coping skills, problem solving skills and a greater sense of community. Support Groups are made up of people with common experiences or concerns who provide each other with encouragement, comfort, and advice.
Support is a very important part of the healthy reconciliation of grief issues. Family members and friends can be very supportive, but sometimes it helps to share your experience with others who are dealing with loss.
Sharing and discussion in a group setting can be a positive and rewarding experience. Our support groups are designed to address the emotional, educational and social needs of those who are coping with a death.
This group is geared towards adults who have experienced any type of loss. All Henry Ford Allegiance Hospice grief support groups are free of charge and open to the public.
