VNA & Hospice of the Southwest Region Offers Virtual Bereavement Support Group in Bennington County

BENNINGTON, VT (January 7, 2021)– Beginning Thursday, January 14th, the VNA & Hospice of the Southwest Region (VNASHR) will offer virtual bereavement support meetings the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month from 6 – 7pm. Lori Rogers, VNAHSR’s bereavement care coordinator in Bennington, will facilitate.

“Each of us mourns the loss of a loved one in our own way,” says Rogers. “Many find that sharing their grief experience with others is comforting and helpful.”

Grief is a natural and fully human process that affects each of us psychologically, physically, behaviorally, and spiritually, and often the symptoms hit us all at once. There is not one way to cope with the death of a loved one. Bereavement support groups can help decrease feelings of isolation and loneliness and provide a safe space to process feelings of grief and loss.

Meetings are free and open to the public. Pre-registration is requested.

For more information, or to register, please contact Mary Pleasant, bereavement coordinator, at 802.442.0540 or email
