Bereavement group starts May 14

Passages — a grief support group for persons living in the greater Rome area, starts this month.

It will meet Mondays, May 14 through June 25 (except for Memorial Day), from 4 to 5:30 p.m., at Bethany Gardens Skilled Living Center, 800 W. Chestnut St. Pre-registration is not required but is by calling Lisa B. Wolfe, LMSW, at Hospice & Palliative Care, Inc., 735-6487 x214, or 1800-317-5661.

Passages is for any adult who has experienced the loss of a loved one from illness, accident, or suicide. Individuals are welcome to attend no matter the length of time from the death.

"This group is a safe place to share feelings and experiences, ask questions, seek support, or just listen," Wolfe said.
