The holidays are fast approaching, and this time of year can be most painful—especially if you have recently lost a loved one through death. The holidays are a time when family members and friends gather to celebrate the season, but for many, it can be a dreaded time of year.
Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County Generations of Life Bereavement Center will be offering education and support to grieving adults to help prepare for the holiday season.
We will talk about why holiday grief is so hard—the anticipation, our limitations, and expectations and past traditions. We will talk about compromise and giving yourself permission to create your own rituals to acknowledge your loved one while caring for yourself. We will adjourn with a holiday memorial service and light refreshments.
Grief and the Holidays will be offered twice at 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. on Monday, November 13 at the Troy Hayner Cultural Center. This event is offered free of charge.
Register by calling Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County Generations of Life Bereavement Center at (937) 573-2103. Please register by Wednesday, November 8, as seating is limited.
