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 community at large as well as families of hospice patients. Many find that gathering together in this way can be helpful and healing.

The eight-week group will meet Tuesdays, July 1 to Aug. 19, from 4 to 6 p.m. There is no charge for participation, but pre-registration is required.

For more information, please contact Sandy Yakovenko, 372-6322, or Barbara Spalding, 236-3056.

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