State of the Heart Hospice and the Versailles Health Care Center are continuing their collaborative efforts to present grief support groups to the public. The two entities conducted several grief support groups last year. On Tuesday, March 17 the topic for the evening will be “Spirituality and Grief.” The session is from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Care Center, 200 Marker Rd. in Versailles. It is free and open to anyone regardless of association with hospice or the Care Center.

“This is a continuation of our efforts to take our bereavement services to the community,” stated Traci Straley, Director of Social Services for State of the Heart. Bereavement support is an important part of the services offered by State of the Heart. The agency cares for patients and families in eastern Indiana and western Ohio who are confronting a life limiting illness. In previous sessions, the topics covered included: Feelings and Grief; Holiday Grief Support and Healthy Grieving.

Facilitating the sessions on behalf of State of the Heart will be Meredith Carpe, a Hospice Licensed Social Worker who has facilitated other grief support groups. Jackie McEldowney, a Licensed Social Worker at Versailles Health Care Center, will be in attendance and will assist Carpe.

McEldowney said the staff at Versailles Health Care Center is pleased to work with State of the Heart to bring the grief support series to the public. “Helping people is what it is all about, and this is an extension of that philosophy,” she said. Registration is required and this can be done by calling McEldowney at 937-526-5570.
