Making and sharing a favorite dish that reminds you of a lost loved one can help revive special memories and can help relieve some of the loss felt when faced with a large hole in your life. It is not necessary to share a favorite dish with the Memory Dish Bereavement Group, but it is encouraged.

Trained facilitators and group counselors will be in attendance.

There is no cost to attend the group but it is helpful for facilitators to know who is coming. Call 775-782-1510 for more information.
