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.
Parkinson's Support Group
This support group meets the second Thursday of the month at Clay County Medical Center and provides an opportunity to broaden your knowledge of Parkinson’s disease, share questions, concerns or feelings and become more aware of available resources.
Stroke Support Group
The stroke support group is open to survivors of stroke, family members, caregivers, and friends of those who have suffered a stroke. At the meeting, attendees are able to discuss coping strategies to meet the challenges of daily living. Stroke survivors are encouraged to share their experiences. The group meets every third Tuesday of each month at 10:00 a.m., in the Clay County Medical Center education room.
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 first Thursday of each month in the Meadowlark Hospice office conference room located at 709 Liberty St. in Clay Center. Additional support groups are offered in other counties.
