Hospice of Michigan to host Walking Through Grief support group

BIG RAPIDS, Mich. (Oct. 6, 2017) – Join Hospice of Michigan for Walking Through Grief, a free monthly grief support group, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. on the third Thursday of each month through December, located in the pavilion at Hemlock Park on the east end of Hemlock and Warren in Big Rapids.

Walking Through Grief will address grief and loss topics in an informal but supportive manner. While discussion topics vary based on the interests of the group, the focus is to practice self-care through exercise while experiencing support in a non-judgmental environment.

The group is open to all members of the public, regardless of whether or not their loved one received service from Hospice of Michigan.

To register, please contact Katie Gedraitis at kgedrait@hom.org or 231.527.0913.
