Please join Hospice Austin for these free Drop-In Bereavement Groups this month.
Being Alone in My Grief: Solitude vs. Loneliness
The experience of grief includes periods of loneliness and times of solitude. Join us to discuss the differences between the two, the common experiences of loneliness and the importance of solitude.
