Grief Support Group

MHP Hospice Services offers Grief Support Group

Mahaska Health Partnership Hospice Services offers a Grief Support Group the third Monday of every month for adults who have suffered a loss.

“Anyone who has experienced a loss, whether recently or over the years is welcome to attend the group,” explained Mahaska Hospice Social Worker/Bereavement Coordinator Julie Glass.

Glass said the goal of the Grief Support Group is to provide a safe place to express feelings with others who have also experienced the loss of a loved one; to increase understanding of the grieving process; and to offer suggestions for coping with loss. “The loss of a loved one is an inevitable part of everyone’s life, however; we all grieve differently and the length of the grieving process varies.”

Hospice seeks to provide empathy and to alleviate any unnecessary suffering caused by lack of understanding of the grieving process. “We believe that a full, satisfactory life is possible for anyone after a major loss,” Glass said.

The MHP Grief Support Group meets Mondays at 7 p.m. in the MHP Board Room. The MHP Campus is located at 1229 C Avenue East, Oskaloosa. For more information about the Grief Support Group, contact Glass at 641-672-3260.
