Coastal Family Hospice Volunteers is forming a peer support group for anyone experiencing the loss of a loved one.

The group is open to the public as well as families of hospice patients. Many find gathering together with others who have experienced a similar loss can be helpful and healing.

The 10-week group will meet Tuesdays, July 23 to Sept. 24, from 6 to 8 p.m. There is no charge for participation, but registration is required. Please contact Barbara Spalding at 413-218-3395 or Sandy Yakovenko at 372-6322 by July 19.

Coastal Family Hospice Volunteers works with Kno-Wal-Lin Home Care and Hospice to provide support for its hospice patients and their families in Knox and Lincoln counties.
