Royal Oak, Michigan, May 3, 2016 – Arbor Hospice is offering grief support in an outdoor setting to provide a different environment for individuals seeking those services.
Support in the Park will be held every Thursday afternoon in June at Starr Jaycee Park in Royal Oak. The sessions are open to all who have lost a loved one.
“We think the nice June weather is an opportunity to provide a change of pace for our grief support sessions,” said Claudia Been, grief support services manager at HOM. “Sometimes a change of environment can be beneficial for those who are taking part in these sessions, particularly if they tend to find solace outdoors.”
The sessions are scheduled for 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the park, 1101 W. 13 Mile Road. Participants should meet near the picnic shelter.
While there is no charge to attend the event, registration is required. For more information or to register, call Been at 248.334.1323.
