Elder Grief – SUPPORT GROUP


TABITHA INVITES COMMUNITY TO GRIEF SUPPORT GROUPS IN LINCOLN

Tabitha, your answer for Elder Care, is pleased to invite the community to its 2014 winter and spring grief groups.

GriefShare is a compassionate support group led by Concordia University’s Rev. Dr. Kevin Kohnke and addresses a range of grief-related topics, including the uniqueness of grief, the effects and journey of grief, how not to become mired in grief, and the spiritual healing grief can provide. GriefShare participants are invited to attend any part or all of the 13-week series, to be held in two separate sessions on Tabitha’s main campus in Lincoln (4720 Randolph St.). The first session meets Wednesday afternoons from 1:30-3 p.m. beginning Feb. 12, and the second session is scheduled for Wednesday mornings from 10-11:30 a.m. beginning Feb. 19.

Growing Through Grief is a six-week support group exploring loss through poetry, art and conversation. The group meets each Wednesday between Feb. 19 and March 26 from 10-11:30 a.m. on Tabitha’s main campus and is facilitated by Tabitha social worker Kara Mueller.

A specialized, drop-in grief group designed specifically for men suffering a loss is offered on an ongoing basis on the first and third Friday of the month at the Loveknot Café (1265 Cotner Blvd.) from 1:30-3 p.m. The group is facilitated by Ross Smith, Tabitha bereavement coordinator.

Those planning to attend any of Tabitha’s grief groups are encouraged to RSVP to 402.486.8506.

As a nonprofit organization serving 28 Nebraska counties, Tabitha’s love embraces a society where everyone is valued and empowered to live life to the fullest, with compassionate at-home support, innovative living communities, exceptional rehabilitation, health care and hospice services.
