Hospice of Spokane offers class for newly bereaved

Hospice of Spokane has some excellent programs for people in grief.

Here’s some information about a new offering, the Newly Bereaved Class, sent from Dale Hammond of Hospice of Spokane.

The series will offer information, education and activities in a group setting. Instructors will lead group discussions and use print and video curriculum from various national resources like the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.

Content will cover topics including “Getting in Touch” (identifying and normalizing feelings and reactions), “Telling Your Story,” “Self Care,” “Relationships,” “Special Days” and “A New Normal.”

Class attendees who complete the series will learn about the bereavement process and are welcome to transition into our free grief support groups if they wish.

There is no cost to attend the series. The classes will be on the first, second and third Thursdays of each month beginning June, and will run 1:30-2:30. People who wish to attend should call Hospice of Spokane’s bereavement department at 509.456.0438 or email
