Hospice Offering Holiday-Support Grief Program
WHAT: H.O.P.E. “Heart Opens – Peace Enters” for the Holidays is a special grief support group intended to help those who are coping with the loss of a loved one, specifically children. This grief support group will be split into two age groups: one for adults and guardians and the other for children ages 7 through 13. Through structured activities, children will learn how to deal constructively with feelings of loss while parents and guardians will learn how to effectively support children as they journey through their grief.
