Horizon Health is offering a six-week grief support group for people who have lost a loved one.

The group will meet Wednesdays, August 24 to September 28, from 3:30 to 4:30 pm. All sessions will take place at Senior Care, located in the Life Center building, 745 E. Court Street, on the Horizon Health main campus in Paris.

The support group will provide emotional support and effective ways that promote healing after a loss. The goal is to provide a “safe haven” for attendees to express their feelings and receive support from grief specialists and group members.

Group facilitators are Lisa Brinkerhoff, licensed clinical social worker at Senior Care, and April Ridgley, social services case manager at Horizon Health.

This free support group is available to adults age 18 and older. All discussions are kept confidential. Registration is required. Call 217-466-4170. Please register early as space is limited.

Another six-week grief support group will meet Wednesdays, October 12 to November 16, from 3:30 to 4:30 pm at Senior Care.
