Agape Hospice offering grief support
Agape Hospice is hosting a closed-ended, Grief Support Group for any adult who has experienced the death of a loved one. It does not matter how long ago the death occurred or the nature of the loss, you will be welcomed with open arms.

The group will meet from 3-4:30 p.m. Wednesdays at Agape Hospice at 1800 Paris Avenue in Port Royal for six consecutive weeks beginning Aug. 14. Group participants should plan to attend every session. Once the group begins, no new group members will be added.

Please contact grief counselor Cathy Campbell at 843-217-3312 or email to register. There is no charge for attending this group.
Grief is one of the most painful experiences we will ever have to endure. It actually changes who we are and how we feel about the world. It can take time to work through your emotions and even more time to adapt to a new life without your loved one. 

Come, join us for a time of sharing, learning, reflecting, and remembering. There are others who can understand your grief and relate to your experience. You are not alone.
