HOSPICE & PALLIATIVE CARE OFFERS “GRIEF AND THE HOLIDAYS” AT UNITED METHODIST CHURCH, NEW HARTFORD
Grief and the Holidays, an educational program on how to embrace the holidays while grieving the loss of a loved one, will be offered Sunday, October 30, 2016, at the New Hartford First United Methodist Church, 105 Genesee Street, New Hartford, from 2:00-4:00 p.m.
Holidays are filled with traditions that are an important part of our culture and family structure, yet honoring these customs can be difficult at a time when energy and spirits are low. The focus will be on how to build bridges from the past to the present by altering expectations to meet current needs. Included in the program is a ceremony to celebrate the lives of the loved ones participants have lost. At the conclusion, refreshments will be served offering time to continue the support and comfort found during the program.
Pre-registration is required by Monday, October 24, 2016. To register, call Janet Benjamin, LCSW, at 735-6487 x271 or 1-800-317-5661. There is no charge for bereavement groups or workshops. Donations are always appreciated.
