The Akron General Hospice of Visiting Nurse Service (VNS) Center for Loss and Hope is offering a free series on “Men Facing Grief” January 7, 14 and 21 from 5:30–7 p.m. at the Hospice of VNS Care Center, 3358 Ridgewood Road, Copley. Men in general seem to find it more difficult than women to recognize and deal with grief. Oftentimes, men even have a hard time acknowledging their need for support when they have experienced a death of a loved one. This group, for men only, seeks to provide ideas for helping men heal from a loss.
The class is open to men in the community at no charge. Enrollment is limited, so please call to reserve a place. To register, or for more information on this series, or on other Hospice of VNS Bereavement support programs or individual grief counseling, please call 330-668-4662 or 800-335-1455, Ext. 4662.
