The H.E.A.L. (Help Ease A Loss) Grief Support Group meets weekly at Hospice Maui in Wailuku and is free of charge. The meeting alternates each week between Tuesday 3 – 4:30pm or Wednesday 6 – 7:30pm. The group provides an opportunity to share your experiences and feelings regarding the death of your loved one and to listen to and learn from others.
Participants do not have to have been a part of Hospice, but do need to have experienced the death of a loved one in the last 3 years. Participants share about the death of their loved one, how their grief is progressing, what has worked to help them and what challenges they are facing currently.
We all grieve differently. Many people don’t feel the need of a support group until long after the death of a loved one. Attend whenever you are ready, whether it is soon after your loved one’s death, or much later.
Our Hospice Maui Bereavement Counselors facilitate these weekly events. They are:
- Joyce Lechuga RN, MS, MFCC
- Ilona Briley, RN
- Prakash Mackay, MA
