State of the Heart Hospice Offers Adult Grief Group

State of the Heart Hospice is hosting a six week Adult Grief Support Group series beginning Thursday, May 7 and ending June 11 at the agency’s office, 1350 N. Broadway in Greenville. The meetings will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

“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 Darlene Pearson, a Licensed Social Worker with State of the Heart who has helped with grief support groups in the past. The sessions are free and are open to anyone in the community who is dealing with grief, she added. “A person need not have an association with hospice care.” Assisting Pearson will be Hospice volunteer Terri Crandall.

“The feedback we get from those attending is that many become more aware that their feelings of grief and loss are normal and that others may feel the same as they do,” Pearson said.

State of the Heart, with offices in Greenville, Portland and Coldwater, cares for families and patients in eastern Indiana and western Ohio who are 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 and ask to speak with a member of the bereavement staff at 1-800-417-7535 for more information and to register. To learn more about the services offered by State of the Heart, visit the agency website at
