Bereavement Groups and Death Cafes

Lone Woman, Widowed, Divorced, or Lonely, Contemplating Grief, Sadness, Depression

Everyone experiences death at some point in their lives. For those grieving, Henrico County Public Library is offering monthly Bereavement Groups at Tuckahoe Area Library and Sandston Branch Library. The Bereavement groups are safe spaces to work through your loss in a group setting. Join Alane Ford from James River Home Health and Hospice at 6pm on the second Monday of the month at Sandston or at 2pm on the fourth Thursday of the month at Tuckahoe.

For a lighter conversation about death and dying, Ms. Ford will also be leading discussion groups as part of the Death Cafe series. The next one will be at Twin Hickory Area Library on Monday, May 7th at 7pm, followed the next month at Fairfield Area Library on Monday, June 4th at 1pm.

All programs are free and open to the public.

I'm here for you
