Hospice Circle of Love Offering June Community Grief Group

Grieving the death of a loved one is a difficult thing to go through and Hospice Circle of Love’s Bereavement Team wants to help those in need. The organization is hosting a community grief group over 4 weeks in June. Meetings will take place every Tuesday of the month: June 6th, 13th, 20th & 27th. They will be held from 5:00 to 6:00 PM at Hospice Circle of Love, 314 S. Third, Enid. The grief group is free and open to anyone 18 and over who is dealing with the death of a loved one. Each of the sessions will focus on different aspects of the grieving process. Participants look back, by celebrating memories, so that they can move forward, by discovering meaning and purpose for the future.

“One major benefit of our grief group, is finding out that your grieving is normal. Another great benefit is the opportunity to connect with other people who are going through the same things,” commented Circle of Love Bereavement Coordinator Kevin Strope. Those who would like to sign up for the grief group can call Strope or Chaplain Gary Miller at 580-234-2273.

Hospice Circle of Love is a not-for-profit organization that helps terminally ill patients and their families “Make Every Day Count”. Circle of Love opened their doors in 1983 and is one of the longest standing hospices in Oklahoma.

Hospice Circle of Love Seeking Volunteers

Hospice Circle of Love is looking for new volunteers to help make a difference in the lives of patients and their families. Potential volunteers are invited to join the team by taking a volunteer training course, scheduled for February 9th & 16th from 2 to 5 each day at the Circle of Love office, 314 S. Third in Enid.

Hospice Circle of Love volunteers provide respite for caregivers and companionship to patients. In addition, they assist with the agency’s annual fundraisers, such as book sales, Tree of Life and a clay shoot. They also work in the office, which might include putting together packets for hospice intakes, filing or answering phones during a staff meeting. In addition, volunteers assist the agency by helping with annual flu clinics, working health fair booths, or helping to maintain the organization’s Veteran’s Memorial Garden.

“There are many ways our volunteers help out and each one is important,” commented Volunteer Coordinator Julie Nelson. “Volunteers choose which areas they are most interested in and that’s where they are placed.”

Anyone who is interested in being a volunteer can call Julie at 580-234-2273
