SORRY! THIS SERIES IS FULL!

Fridays, 3:00pm-4:30pm 

This support/work group focuses on those who are still adjusting to loss after a year or more. If you are feeling stuck and need additonal support in reestablishing peronal contacts, connections and a sense of purpose, you will benefit from the sessions.

The program will meet for 10 weeks (July 2-Sept. 10; will not meet August 6) and is facilitated by a counselor from Hospice of the Piedmont. It is ideal to attend from the beginning but all are welcome at anytime. For more info, contact Rene Bond. Space is limited. Please register below.

Writing for Healing and Growth

Writing for Healing and Growth

Monday, August 2, 2021 | 10:00-12:00pm

Mondays 10:00am - 12:00pm

Anyone who has ever kept a journal, written stories about his or her life, or just let the pencil do the talking knows that writing is indeed a powerful instrument for fulfillment, growth, and healing. Writing that comes from the heart and mind gives expression to that which is uniquely us. Experience the adventure of writing in this weekly workshop. The emphasis is on—but is not limited to—the writing of memoirs. This is not a critique group; it is designed to provide the support that people need to tell their stories. Strict rules of privacy and confidentiality will be observed. Leonard Tuchyner facilitates. Members only, limited availability. Fee is $15/month for standard members; free for Prime members. 

PLEASE EMAIL JENNIFER CREWS at jennifer@thecentercville.org IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN JOINING THIS GROUP.  

Members only.

Essential Tremor Support Group (Onsite)

Essential Tremor Support Group (Onsite)

Thursday, September 9, 2021 | 4:00-5:00pm

Will not meet in July and August

2nd Thursday of each month, 4:00pm-5:00pm

"We believe that our group members and our programs provide help and information about a condition that can be difficult and embarrassing,” says group leader John Watterson. Essential tremor is a neurological condition that causes shaking of the head, hands, and voice. An estimated 10 million people in the United States have essential tremor (ET). While not life-threatening, ET is a serious and progressive condition that can significantly affect a person’s quality of life—socially, professionally, and emotionally. People with ET often have difficulty with everyday activities such as getting dressed, eating, drinking, speaking or writing. Of 20-plus different kinds of tremor, essential tremor (ET) is the most common. Also known as familial tremor, benign essential tremor or hereditary tremor, ET is a neurological condition often confused with Parkinson’s disease and dystopia. Due to misguided beliefs and lack of awareness, many people with this condition never seek medical care though most would benefit from treatment. This group is both educational and supportive, and free. We meet on the second Thursday of each month, from 4:00-5:00pm.

International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF) The IETF funds research to find the cause of essential tremor (ET) that leads to treatments and a cure, increases awareness, and provides educational materials, tools, and support for healthcare providers, the public, and those affected by ET.
