BEREAVEMENT CLASS

Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice is offering seven-week bereavement support groups at two locations in February and March.

One group will meet in Laconia on Thursdays, and the other group will meet in Wolfeboro on Tuesdays. Each meeting will last 1½ hours.

The VNA & Hospice says support groups give people the opportunity to discuss and learn ways of coping with their loss, to gain the support of others in safe and caring ways, and to learn about the grief process. Preregistration for the free groups is required. To register or for more information, contact Dan Kusch, hospice bereavement coordinator, to schedule an appointment at 524-8444 ext. 2390 (Laconia), 569-2729 ext. 3256 (Wolfeboro) or email dkusch@centralvna.org. Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice has served Lakes Region communities in Belknap and southern Carroll County for 100 years and currently provides home care, pediatric care and the hospice program.
