Lunch is on us!
With a new year upon us, Hospice has organized a series of free monthly lunch and learns to give community members an opportunity to participate in education and meaningful conversation on a variety of topics. Join us on the 3rd Thursday of each month from 11:30am-1:00pm at the Hospice Center!
Upcoming Sessions Include:
February 21st – Coffin Club: Lunch and Conversation with a Funeral Director
We all have them – ordinary and not so ordinary questions about funerals, cremation vs. burial and many other curiosities that are so difficult to ask. This is your chance! The first Coffin Club was held this fall and was incredibly successful, we wanted to give community members another opportunity to get their questions answered.
March 21st – The Art of Condolence presented by David Hornung
Following the death of his wife, David learned just how difficult it was for some people to effectively express their condolences. This workshop will present ideas for the right things to say (or not say) when you want to be supportive of someone experiencing grief.
Lunch will be provided at each workshop. These are free workshops open to anyone.
For more information or to register please contact Samantha Jones at 315-265-3105 or email@example.com.
We hope to see you there!
2018 Living with Grief During the Holidays Workshops
The holidays are often the most challenging time of year when grieving the death of a loved one. Family traditions can be powerful reminders of those who have died. Hospice encourages the bereaved to find positive ways to cope with loss and change.
The Living with Grief During the Holidays workshops will offer tips, tools and strategies to help you navigate the demands of the seasons. Each session will offer a different perspective for approaching the corresponding holiday. They are free and open to anyone struggling with the death of a loved one, and to those offering comfort to the bereaved.
Materials, including a Holiday Coping Plan, will be provided to participants, as well as a information, resources and therapeutic discussion.
The workshops will be held on Satrudays November 10th, December 15th and January 19th from 1:00-3:00p.m. here at the Hospice Center on Route 11.
