Events & Programs

Events

With the help of volunteer committees and generous sponsors, Community Nurse Home Care produces annual fundraising events to support our patients’ health and quality of life.

We host a variety of events from our very popular Bingo Night to educational events to more formal evening fundraisers. These events not only raise critical funds, they also create an opportunity to get to know us and have a better understanding of the services we provide to our community.


Programs

Whether you are an individual coping with a long-lasting health condition, a busy caregiver, community member or professional, you can turn to Community Nurse Home Care to address your need for information. Our experienced staff provide practical, professional (CEU and non) and engaging programs in a variety of settings.

Let us customize a program for you. Contact info@communitynurse.com.

Adult Grief Support Group Virtual event | 07/09/20 | 12:00 pm | Zoom

5 consecutive session dates Thursdays July 9,  July 16, July 23, July 30, August 6

No charge to participants.

This program is designed for any adult who has suffered a loss.

Losing a loved one is difficult. Meeting the challenges of living without that special person in a society that does not model or honor the grieving process is even more challenging.

Facilitated by hospice chaplain, Mary Finnin, M.A.R., this multi-week group provides the support needed during a time of loss. A mindful program framework sets a safe, respectful space enabling each group member to determine the participation level that is comfortable for them. They may freely share experiences and actively participate in activities or they may quietly reflect on the provided materials. Group members will gain experiential learning and take away tools to work through the process of grief.

From fresh grief to grief from long ago, support is vital and available – where ever you are in your grief journey.
