Grief support

HONESDALE, PA — Wayne Memorial Hospital is presenting a six-week grief-support session on Thursday evenings from 6 to 7 p.m. from October 1 through November 5 in conference room 4 on the second floor of the hospital.

Acknowledging that grief is a very individual process, the sessions will encourage participants to explore their own solutions to the challenges of living without their loved ones and dealing with the many changes that follow a loss.

Participants are asked to complete a registration form, which can be found at www.wmh.org. For more information, email ed wardkerb@aol.com or walsha@wmh.org.
