Hospice of St. Lawrence Valley’s Community Bereavement Services is offering a new 6-week grief support group starting in September.
The Navigating Grief group will meet on Tuesdays at 2:00PM via Zoom from Sept. 14th to Oct. 19th and will be facilitated by Hospice’s Bereavement Coordinator, Kate Favaro, CRPA.
The group will help participants develop healthy develop healthy coping skills and provide peer support to foster growth and healing. The sessions are structured to build upon each other and attendance to all 6 sessions is essential.
Navigating Grief is open to anyone 18 and older who has had a loved one pass away in the last 6-12 months. (The deceased individual did not have to be served by Hospice.)
Ideally, interested individuals will have already begun working on their grief and will be comfortable sharing their story and feelings with a small group.
To determine if the group will be beneficial, a screening process will occur at time of registration to ensure the interested individual equipped and ready to participate.
*Please note: Due to COVID concerns and restrictions, this group will be held exclusively via Zoom. Participants must have a valid email address and access to a computer with a webcam, smartphone, or tablet. Zoom link will be emailed to those who register by Sept. 14th.
It’s that time of year again; as crisp, cool nights melt into warm sunny days, we can be sure spring is on the way for the North Country. The changing of the season brings great excitement as we begin planning our popular gourmet brunch event.
Since we can’t ask you to dine with us in person due to pandemic restrictions, we have decided to bring Tastes to you! Enjoy fine dining at home with Tastesto Go: A Take & Bake Fundraiser for Hospice. All entrées will be prepared and packaged to be re-heated at home. Each entrée is $25.00 and comes with a fresh spring mix salad and dessert.
Tastes to Go features the culinary creativity of local chefs Eric Armstrong of the Gran-View, Jessika & Baily Furnace of Little Italy-Canton, and Jason Bartholomew of SUNY Canton Dining Services. Our guest chefs are preparing gourmet meals you can enjoy in the safety and comfort of your own home. All food preparations and packaging will be done in a certified kitchen and will adhere to NYSDOH guidelines.
Orders can be picked up at the Cornell Cooperative Extension Learning Farm (2043 SH 68, Canton) on Saturday, April 17th between 11:00AM and 1:00PM. Please be sure to include a valid email address for order confirmation!
When a star in your life becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.
Hospice of St. Lawrence Valley invites you to share the memories of those you treasure by joining with others in our annual Memory Tree campaign.
Celebrate the life of someone you cherish and light up the holiday for someone who is terminally ill by purchasing a star in honor of someone who has touched your life and left it changed forever.
Traditionally, throughout the month of December, two trees adorned with hundreds of stars representing precious loved ones are displayed at the Hospice Center.
This year, however, we are not able to invite you to our building to view the trees. Instead, we invite you to participate in the Hospice Memory Tree campaign by hanging a star for your loved one on your tree at home.
With your donation, you will receive up to ten (10) Wooden Star Ornaments painted with your loved ones’ names to hang in your home. Your loved ones’ names will also be included in our virtual 2020 Memory Tree Book. (You may submit an unlimited number of names to be preserved in our Memory Book.)
Your contribution will help to ensure the highest quality end-of-life care and grief support continues to be available to our friends and neighbors in St. Lawrence County when they need it most. Thank you for your support!
