State of the Heart Hospice Offers Greenville Adult Grief Group

State of the Heart Hospice is hosting a six week Adult Grief Support Group series beginning Tuesday, May 6 and ending Tuesday, June 10 at the agency’s office, 1350 N. Broadway in Greenville. The sessions, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the evening, are free and open to anyone who needs grief support, regardless of association with hospice care.

“The meetings are particularly good for those who have lost a loved one and are grieving their loss and need help dealing with their grief,” stated Erin Meyer, a Social Worker with State of the Heart who has conducted grief support sessions in the past. Joining her for the grief support meetings is Hospice Social Worker Pam Pohlman.

“Each person grieves differently,” Meyer said. “Often, people feel they are the only ones who have trouble dealing with loss and grief. By attending the grief support sessions, people find they are not alone in their grief and find that others feel as they do. They tend to open up, expressing their feelings and sharing their sense of loss,” she explained.

State of the Heart, with offices in Greenville, Portland and Coldwater, cares for families and patients confronting a life-limiting illness. Bereavement support is an important part of the care provided by State of the Heart.

Registration is necessary. Please call 1-800-417-7535 and ask for a member of the bereavement staff for more information and to register. Visit the agency website at
