Portage Health has finalized its support group schedule for the second half of 2013. This schedule includes the bereavement support group, caregiver support group and partnering with Aspirus Keweenaw to host a women’s cancer survivors support group.

The bereavement support group is on the first Wednesday of every month at 4 p.m. at Portage Health Home Health office on Water Street in Hancock.

The caregiver support group is on the third Wednesday of every month at 1:30 p.m. at The Bluffs in Houghton.

The women’s cancer support group is on the final Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. alternating between Portage Health and Aspirus Keweenaw. The November date has been moved to Nov. 20 because of Thanksgiving, and as of now, the December meeting is cancelled because of the holiday season.
