Grief support group opens in Bangor
BANGOR - For adults dealing with the death of a loved one, there is a new support group available from May 9 to June 13 at 885 Union Street, Suite 220. The Hospice of Eastern Maine is starting a six-week support group to offer adults the opportunity to learn about grief, share their experiences, and practice healthy coping techniques. "Come and talk about grief and the grieving process with others who are walking a similar path,” said Joel Wiggin, bereavement coordinator at Hospice of Eastern Maine in Bangor. The group will meet every Tuesday from 5 to 6:30 pm. “Participants should plan to attend all six sessions,” adds Joel. “No new participants will be accepted after May 16 in order to maintain group integrity.” The support group is free of charge, but space is limited – only twelve spots available. Anyone interest in attending the group should contact Joel Wiggin at 973-8269 in order to reserve their spot in the group.

Depending on the size of your family and circle of friends, someone close may be expected to die every ten years or so. This infrequency leaves most people unprepared for the myriad of details which must be attended to when this eventually occurs.
Fortunately, there is an immediate resource available to assist you in this time of need. It is the Brookings- Smith Life Tribute Center whose people are confronted with the event of death on a continuing basis, and are prepared to guide our clients through the intricate details of preparation.
