Grieving Grandparents

Grieving Grandparents

grands

Beginning June 1, 2023, the grandparent/adult peer grief support program

will continue to offer two monthly Zoom meetings, each with a slightly

different focus.


First Thursday at 5:30 on ZOOM (June 1):


Open to any grandparent who has lost a family member to a substance

use-related death and is now navigating grief and other developmental

issues with their grandchildren. The focus of this group will be on the

grandchildren. Please email me for the link.


Third Monday at noon on ZOOM (June 19):


Open to grandparents who have experienced the death or estrangement of a

grandchild related to substance use disease (theirs or their parents). The focus of this group

will be grief support for the grandparent. Please email me for the link.


The most crucial point to remember is that while grandparents raising

grandchildren are invited to attend either or both groups, being a

grandparent guardian is not a requirement.


If your situation differs from what I have described herein, please come to

either meeting, and we will help you figure it out, or contact me at

[email protected]. The bottom line is that we are here

to support you.

Hope Floats - LGBTQ Partner/Spouse Bereavement Support Group

Hope Floats - LGBTQ Partner/Spouse Bereavement Support Group

It’s not unusual for grievers to feel disconnected from the world around them, but for LGBTQ grief and loss, a lack of disconnect can result in increased seclusion and isolation.While the issues faced in grief can be different for everyone, what every griever needs is the feeling of validation, acceptance and support. This group is designed to focus not only on the importance of support, but of finding the RIGHT support. Connecting with others who understand who we are and where we’ve been can help heal the pain of loss. The group is open to any lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender individuals who have experienced the loss of a partner/spouse. Contact Liz McKenna 781-585-4221 Ext 7 to register.

Journey To Hope

Journey To Hope

Journey To Hope is a parent-only grief group, supporting parents who have lost a child of any age to substance use. It was started by two moms in the Blackstone Valley area who met at a vigil held by the NOWA Peer Recovery Support Center in memory of those who lost the battle against SUD. Our goal is to offer one another peer support and understanding without judgment or bias. For our virtual meeting, you can find the link on the NOWA app, https://nowaedm.glideapp.io

We would love to hold your grieving hearts for a bit…to help offer you hope where there is despair. Losing your child is hard. It’s hard work to watch the world continue to turn while you feel that yours has been shattered. It’s hard to watch the years go by and feel like your child has been forgotten.

Moving forward Parents

Moving forward Parents

We are a group of Mom and Dads (or parent figures) who have lost their child under any circumstances, even woman who have had the loss of a baby via miscarriage. A soul is a soul. We meet every Tuesday at 7 pm via zoom to share our loved ones, our lives and our strengths and our challenges. It is an open meeting, with open discussions. There is usually a subject we discuss from the week before to be able to reflect on. Each week we leave with positive reinforcement's from each other that we are not alone. We can walk forward each day to a good life, a different life, but still a very healthy life with our loved ones still near to our hearts. You do not have to be alone.......ever!
