Clay County Medical Center offers a variety of classes and support groups for members of our community. Whether you are planning for the birth of a child, working to maintain good health, learning to live with a chronic disease or going through the grieving process, we have information to share.
Bereavement Support Groups
The Bereavement Support Groups are open to anyone that has suffered a loss and are open to the public. These support groups focus on learning about grief and loss. Additional support is often needed when an individual suffers the loss of a loved one. Individuals can find this support in the Bereavement Support Group offered by Meadowlark Hospice. This group meets 2nd Tuesday of each month at 4:30 p.m. in the Meadowlark Hospice office conference room located at 709 Liberty Street in Clay Center. Additional support groups are offered in other counties.
This group meets every third Monday of the month at 12:00 p.m., in the Clay County medical Center Education Center. The group is focused to support the challenges of being a caregiver whether it is for a child, spouse, parent, or friend. The type of caregiving that changes your relationship because of a chronic illness, changes in independence, or changes in decision making. We hope you will come to find connection with others that are also managing those challenges. Support will be provided as education and also as sharing opportunities.
Parkinson's Support Group
