Have you experienced the loss of a loved one?

Bereavement Support

A free Grief and Loss Program will run for eight weeks at the Blue Care Centre in Day Street, Stanthorpe. The sessions run from 2:30-4:30pm and afternoon tea is provided. The trained facilitators for this group are Rev Kaye Ronalds and Mrs Irene Scott. The program is open to anyone, not just Blue Care clients.

This program is designed for people who are coming to terms with the death of a loved one. Several of the previous participants were grieving for the loss of a partner in the previous twelve months, while others are grieving for other relatives and friends.

Judy Flitcroft, attended the program last year and said, “At times when grieving for my husband, Peter, I felt like I was losing touch with reality, but the care of other group members and sharing our experiences really helped.” Lindsay Saunders, a resident from Glen Aplin said, “The aim of the grief and loss program is to help you remember your loved one without the heart-ache.” He adds that there is no need to do it alone.

The two hour sessions include some education about grief and refreshments.
Registration forms are now available from the Blue Care Centre at 10 Day Street, Stanthorpe or telephone Kaye Ronalds (07) 4681 2173 or  0418 907540 or Irene Scott 0402 202464. You can also get the information from the ministers, priest and pastors in the district.
Places in the course are limited to eight, but if you miss out this time your name will be added to the waiting list for courses later in the year. The next course begins on 9th May.
