Barton Hospice encourages people who have experienced the loss of a loved one or have endured a significant, life-altering event to attend their ongoing bereavement group called “Reflections of Life and Loss.” This group helps teach attendees how to cope with certain situations and encourages emotional connections with others. Support and bereavement groups allow people to release emotions they may otherwise keep to themselves. It can improve a participant’s mood and decrease psychological distress. For questions or more information, call Tina Bruess at 530-543-5592 or Barton Hospice at 530-543-5581.
