New Bereavement Support Group Offered

NorthBay Hospice and Bereavement will offer an additional Adult Support Group, starting in September. “Our program has increasingly grown as we continue to respond to the needs in the community,” according to Veronica Wertz, bereavement and volunteer coordinator. Adults will have the option to attend a support group meeting on either a Tuesday or Thursday night.

Tuesday’s group meets from 6 to 7 p.m. and the Thursday group meets from 6 to 7:30 p.m. All meetings are held at the NorthBay Center for Primary Care at 2458 Hilborn Road in Fairfield. (Group times may change.) For more information about other bereavement services, please call (707) 646-3597.

Help Is On Hand During the Holidays

With the holiday season approaching, the holidays can bring joy and excitement, but for those dealing with the loss of a loved one the holidays can also become a time of sadness. “Many grievers might even isolate themselves and not partake in the festivities the holidays bring,” says Veronica Wertz, bereavement and volunteer coordinator.

To help people cope, NorthBay Hospice and Bereavement will offer a special workshop that focuses on grief during the holidays. The workshop will be held at 6 p.m. on Nov. 16 at the NorthBay Healthcare Administration Building, 4500 Business Center Drive in Fairfield. To attend, please contact NorthBay Hospice and Bereavement at (707) 646-3597 before Nov. 13, or send an e-mail to Shirley Jacks at sjacks@northbay.org.
