Self-Care and Guided Meditation
Growing Through Grief is one of Pine Tree Hospice’s bereavement programs for adults. The Growing Through Grief program begins with a facilitated grief support group which is then followed by a presentation or workshop.

On December 17th, Gayle Worden, RYT, will talk about self-care for the bereaved and will lead a Guided Meditation. This form of meditation helps calm a busy mind, and helps with sleep. It also has been known to heighten creativity and connectedness. For those who are bereaved, and are having a difficult time finding any inner peace, guided meditation can help lessen thoughts that bombard the mind and make it difficult to think clearly.

Growing Through Grief is held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, September through May, from 1:00-3:00 in Dover-Foxcroft. The grief support group, presentation, and delicious dessert is FREE of charge. Participants must pre-register by calling Pine Tree Hospice at 564-4346.

Exploring the Grief Journey

Growing Through Grief is one of Pine Tree Hospice’s bereavement programs for adults. The Growing Through Grief program begins with a facilitated grief support group which is then followed by a presentation or workshop.

The November program is Exploring the Grief Journey, with Ardie Hacker. Ardie will discuss ways in which we look at and learn from the feelings of grief we have, whether from a loss recently, or in the past. Ardie will use a program that will assist us in organizing our thoughts and feelings about grief and its effects.

Knowing you aren’t alone and that there are others who share the pain of loss can be comforting; being able to talk about your pain can be very healing. Many people find comfort by sharing their feelings of pain, emotions and thoughts in a group setting, or just quietly listening. This facilitated grief support group is a place you may find solace.

Growing Through Grief meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, September through May, from 1:00-3:00 in Dover-Foxcroft. The grief support group, presentation, and delicious dessert are FREE of charge. Participants must preregister by calling Pine Tree Hospice at 564-4346.

FREE movie:  "What They Had"

AARP and Pine Tree Hospice are pleased to bring a FREE movie to the Center Theatre in Dover-Foxcroft. On November 15th, at 7:00 pm, you are invited to watch the movie, "What They Had", and enjoy free popcorn and water on us!

"What They Had" stars Hillary Swank, Blythe Danner, Michael Shannon and Robert Forster. It is the story of a family struggling with Alzheimer’s. An elderly man wakes up during the night to find that his wife has gotten up and left the house during a snowstorm. He calls his son who helps look for his mother, but they also call the daughter, who lives in California, and asks her to help with the situation that is getting worse, and more than the father can deal with. This poignant movie is a story that plays out in countless households today, and makes us think deeply about our responsibilities, and what we might face in the future.

Pine Tree Hospice and AARP want to take this opportunity to offer education to the community and let people know that we are here when you need us.  Whether you are a caregiver now, have been one in the past, or just want to learn more about how a family might deal with caregiving, you are also invited to stay after the movie for a short discussion.

For more information about this event or about Pine Tree Hospice, please call 564-4346 or email wecare at pinetreehospice.org.

Growing Through Grief

Growing Through Grief is one of Pine Tree Hospice’s new Adult Bereavement programs and has taken the place of the former Lunch and Learn group. The “lunch” might be gone, but the support, delicious desserts, and learning experiences continue. The Growing Through Grief program begins with a facilitated grief support group for adults which is then followed by a grief-related presentation or workshop.

It’s difficult to believe, but the holiday seasons are fast approaching! The coming months, filled with special events and festivities, can be especially difficult for people who have suffered the death of a loved one recently or in the past. In the presentation portion of our next Growing Through Grief Group, which is scheduled for October 15th, Reverend Ray Beless will be providing some very helpful tips on how to cope with grief throughout the holiday season and how to navigate your way through all the events and activities.

Knowing you aren’t alone at this time of year and that there are others who share the pain of loss can be comforting; being able to talk about your pain can be very healing. Many people find comfort by sharing their feelings of pain, emotions and thoughts in a group setting, or just listening, and this facilitated grief support group is a place you may find solace.

Growing Through Grief meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, September through May, from 1:00-3:00 in Dover-Foxcroft. The grief support group, presentation, and delicious dessert are FREE of charge. Participants must preregister by calling Pine Tree Hospice at 564-4346.
