Grieving During the Holidays

Grieving During the Holidays
 
Friday, November 21, 2 p.m.
 
A workshop facilitated by Gentiva Hospice
 
The holidays can be a painful time as we struggle to balance celebrating with the deep sadness we feel when we have recently lost a loved one. It may be difficult to join in on all the celebrations around us and hard to understand how others can celebrate when we are still in so much pain. The pressure to “get into the spirit of the season” can feel overwhelming. This workshop provides practical ideas for planning ahead to help weather the flurry of holiday activities and to absorb the love of your well-meaning family and friends, while still honoring your grief and the memory of your loved one.
 
To register and let us know which workshop you will be attending, contact us at:
