Allied Services is preparing to launch a new support group on its Scranton campus. The Bereavement Support Group is free and open to Allied Services employees, families served by Allied Services Hospice and the general public. Theresa Doughty, MS, Spiritual and Bereavement Counselor for Allied Services Hospice will lead the groups. Theresa has 20 years of experience in chaplaincy and social work. She holds a Masters in Pastoral Care and has served patients and their families in hospice, skilled nursing, acute care, inpatient psychiatric and home health settings.

“The days and weeks following the loss of a loved one can be particularly challenging in many ways; from small details in daily life, to the bigger picture. Knowing that others have and are walking this new path can help ease the pain” explains Theresa. “Some may find it helpful to meet and talk with others who have recently lost a loved one. The groups are confidential, supportive, and we hope, comforting.”

The Bereavement Support Group will take place in the Center Board Room at Luger Rehab Center, 475 Morgan Highway, Scranton, PA 18508. Meetings will be held on the first Tuesday of each month beginning in April. Future dates: April 4, May 9, June 6, July 11, August 8, September 12
