Hospice offers free grief-support sessions


WALLA WALLA -- Walla Walla Community Hospice will offer three free grief support groups this month.

Two adult groups will begin March 21 and will continue every Wednesday through May 23 at the hospice office, 1067 Isaacs Ave.

One group will meet from 10-11:30 a.m. at the Hospice office, and another group will meet from 6-7:30 p.m.

Participants are asked to register at 525-5561 or by email to info@wwhospice.org before March 16.

Hospice is also offering children's grief support.

A one-day event is planned for March 24 at the YMCA, 340 S. Park St., 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

This will be followed by a series of classes beginning April 3 and continuing on April 17, May 1, 15, and 29, 5:30-7 p.m., at Merriam Street Apartments, 115 Merriam St., in the Fireside Room.

A light meal is included.

The sessions will allow a safe atmosphere to process and express children's thoughts and feelings through artwork, dance and movement, music and pet therapy. Activities and discussion will be led by the Hospice bereavement team. Both programs are appropriate for children age 6 to 12 who are grieving the death of a loved one.

Parents are asked to register ahead as enrollment is limited.
