Hospice of Hilo to Host Free Six-Week Grief Support Group

Hospice of Hilo will be offering a free, six-week adult grief support group called, “The Healing Journey”. The group is open to anyone in the community who has suffered a loss. Meetings will be at Hospice of Hilo’s office complex located at 1011 Waiānuenue Ave, Hilo, on Wednesdays from 10:00am to 11:30 am from September 6 through October 11.

“Participants are comforted by the validation of their grief and the knowledge that they are not alone.” said Hospice of Hilo Community Bereavement Counselor and group leader Cathy Hough. “To light memorial candles for their loved ones, write in journals, and to learn about the ways that grief ‘shows up’ empowers them to take charge and navigate their personal journey of loss.”

A recent participant explained, “Cathy’s commitment and pride in her work are evident. I think anyone could benefit from this class since loss in its many forms is universally experienced.” Healing Journey attendees have commented that the group was very helpful to them, finding it to have a kind and loving atmosphere in which to share their grief. “I use the coping mechanisms provided to this day because my grief journey is an on-going process.”

To participate in the Healing Journey six-week adult support group, please RSVP no later than Wednesday, August 30 to Cathy Hough at (808) 961-7309.
