Prairie Ridge Health offers a variety of support groups for patients and community members. 

Diabetes & Wellness Support Group 

The Diabetes and Wellness Support Group provides education, fellowship, and support to help you better manage your diabetes and lead a healthier lifestyle. You do not need to have diabetes to attend - friends and families are always welcome! Each month we cover a different topic and materials for each meeting are provided below in case you are unable to attend in person.

The group meets:

  • Third and Fourth Wednesday of every month from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m.

Cancer Support Group

*We are not offering Cancer Support groups at this time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please visit the American Cancer Society website for additional resources.*

Prairie Ridge Health provides Cancer support groups for people with cancer and those touched by the disease. A lot of people receive support from friends and family. Research has shown through support groups one's quality of life and survival rate increase as a result of being able to relate to others with similar cancer experiences.

Support groups can:

• Help you feel hopeful
• Provides a network for you to lean on
• Provides a forum for you to talk about your feelings, struggles, and hopes with others
• Helps you deal with the challenges of everyday life while fighting cancer
• Helps you cope with side effects of treatment and provides an avenue to talk to others about their treatments

Grief Support Group

Hillside Hospice offers a Grief Support Group four times a year. The group meets once a week for seven weeks. Information is shared to help members understand and work through the normal process of grief. The group leaders, with special training in working with grief, provide support and encouragement, helping group members express their feelings. Anyone who has lost a friend, family member, or loved one is encouraged to join the group. All who are grieving are welcome, no matter how long ago the loss occurred.
