Tuesday evening spouse loss support group offered in fall


The death of a spouse or life partner is difficult to handle. If you are struggling to cope with the loss of your loved one and worried about facing the future without your partner, The Healing Place offers a structured setting for participants to safely and comfortably discuss issues related to the death of their spouse/life partner. Topics include managing the emotions of grief, dealing with holidays and special days, finding hope in the challenging days ahead and caring for ourselves in the midst of change.

“Clients consistently share with us that attending this support group was one of the best decisions they made around taking care of themselves after the loss of their life partner,” said Amy Segerstrom, coordinator of The Healing Place.

The group will meet for six consecutive Tuesday evenings, September 5 through October 10, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at The Healing Place, 1010 Oakridge Drive in Eau Claire. To register, please call (715) 717-6028 by August 31.

The Healing Place is a community outreach service of HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital and provides free services to anyone in the community who has experienced a loss and is in need of spiritual and emotional support.
