Free Bereavement Support Group for men offered

Group to start April 12 at the Seasons of Hope Grief Center in Salmon Creek

VANCOUVER — Community Home Health & Hospice is offering a five-week, free grief support group for men at the Seasons of Hope Grief Center, 3102 NE 134th Street, Vancouver.

The group meets Fridays at 9 a.m. for coffee, from April 12–May 10. It is facilitated by Chaplain Joel Whiteside,  with more than 15 years of experience leading grief groups, and Rick Sievers, assistant bereavement coordinator.

This new grief support group is for men who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Men grieve uniquely and our experienced staff are here to help. Join a small group of men to gain a deeper understanding of the grieving process and to help move towards a “new normal.” A men’s grief support group provides an opportunity for men to talk with one another about their own grief experience in a welcoming, comfortable and healing environment. Grief support groups are open to anyone who has lost a loved one, not just those touched by hospice. Registration is requested, (360) 270-2327 or
