Fauquier Hospital Hosts Two New Support Groups

In order to help people who are going through difficult times, Fauquier Hospital is hosting two new support groups.

The Cancer Support Group will meet the second Monday of every month, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., in Fauquier Hospital’s Sycamore Room.

Oncology nurses, licensed social workers, and spiritual care providers will offer cancer education,
hope and support to patients, family members and caregivers who share similar experiences.
This professional support, provided by Heartland Hospice, will help guide patients and families through diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. Heartland Hospice of Warrenton provides end-of-life care for the mind and spirit as well as the body. To learn more, contact Mary Kelly, nurse liaison at 540-349-3970.

The Bereavement Support Group has been formed to help those who are experiencing a loss because of the death of a loved one. The group, for those 18 and older, will meet the third Monday of every month at 1 p.m., in Fauquier Hospital’s Chestnut Room and is sponsored by Capital Caring.

To register, or for more information, contact Roxanne Woodward, bereavement counselor, at 703-957-1800. Participants should feel free to drop on at any meeting, without having to notify a counselor in advance.
