SPEARFISH | Hospice of the Northern Hills sponsors several free, ongoing grief support groups for those who are coping with the death of a loved one. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend one of the groups.
• Belle Fourche: Meetings take place the first and third Monday of each month. Upcoming meetings will be at 3 p.m., March 4 and March 18, at Belle Fourche Regional Medical Clinic, 2200 13th Ave.
• Spearfish: Meetings take place the second and fourth Thursday of each month. Upcoming meetings will be at 3 p.m., March 14 and March 28, in the Crow Peak Conference Room at Spearfish Regional Hospital, 1440 N. Main St.
• Sturgis: Meetings take place the first and third Tuesday of each month. Upcoming meetings will be at 3:30 p.m., March 5 and March 19, in the Conference Room at Sturgis Regional Hospital, 949 Harmon St.
These groups are designed to offer support through communication with others who are experiencing the grieving process and provide tools and resources for coping. The goal is to bring understanding of the grief process and its many emotions.
Not everyone who is grieving is ready for a group experience, so advance registration is encouraged. If you or someone you know would benefit from a support group, or for more information, call Hospice of the Northern Hills at (605) 644-4238 or (605) 644-4248.
