General Grief Support Group - DAY AND EVENING
1st and 3rd Thursdays, 2-3:30 pm

This support group is an open-ended (ongoing) group designed to provide support to individuals who have experienced the death of a loved one. Being with individuals who have had similar experiences and feelings allows sharing and healing to take place, and this group provides a safe place where group members can share their story and express their grief.

The Bucket List Book Club
Last Sunday of every month, 2-4 pm
As you can tell by the title, this is not your usual book club! Each month, we will explore issues surrounding death AND life through a variety of books and other media. And no, you don’t have to read the titles to attend! Just come with an open mind and an interest in exploring how to live your best life. This program is in partnership with Frederick County Public Libraries and Curious Iguana.
RSVPs requested, but not required. Rm A-136

Dementia/Alzheimer's Loss Support Group for the Caregiver
Wednesdays, September 6th-October 11th, 5:30-7 p.m.
This 6-week support group is designed for caregivers who have experienced the loss of a loved one due to Dementia or Alzheimer’s. We acknowledge that caregiving for a loved one with dementia presents many distinct challenges that continue to show up in grief. During this group, we will explore and share the issues specific to the grief of Dementia/Alzheimer’s caregivers, as well as provide understanding and validation of feelings, and explore what life looks like, or can look like, after caregiving. Once this group begins, it is closed to new members.
Please register for this group by August 30th.
This group is now full. Please call 240-566-3030 or email to be put on a waiting list.
