CANCELED–Without My Better Half (Detroit Lakes)
April 29, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until May 27, 2020
In the accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recommended mitigation strategies, all Hospice of the Red River Valley support groups and grief-related events are canceled until May 31. Hospice of the Red River Valley will continue monitoring the CDC’s recommendations and update our community as we learn more.
Older adults and persons with severe underlying health conditions are considered to be at increased risk of more serious illness after contracting COVID-19. We want to be sure we are doing what we can to ensure the safety of these groups of people. Since many of our support group attendees are included in these populations, we feel it is in the best interest to suspend the groups at this time.
Hospice of the Red River Valley grief support staff will continue to offer grief support to our community members in need outside of the support group setting. For questions on grief support, please call Kriston Wenzel, grief specialist at (701) 356-1533.
