New Hope Bereavement Support Group

On Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (check website for specific groups)
3-4:30 PM 

"New Hope" is an open-ended bereavement support group for anyone who has lost a loved one through death. Counseling is available to our community through Hospice Care of the Lowcountry’s Bereavement Services department, free of charge. It makes no difference regarding whether the person who died was a Hospice Care of the Lowcountry patient, where the person lived, or the relationship of the survivor. It also doesn’t matter how long ago the loss occurred. Private one-on-one sessions are also available. 

Counseling and groups are facilitated by Barbara Scobey bscobey@hospciecarelc.org Bereavement Services Coordinator for Hospice Care of the Lowcountry.  Lowcountry Presbyterian Church, 10 Simmonsville Rd, Bluffton, SC 29910.
