Holidays and other special days can be an extremely difficult time of year for those who have lost loved ones. “During the holidays, everyone is supposed to be happy and enjoying themselves, but for those that have just lost a loved one, they often feel sad, lonely, and maybe even depressed” said Debra Roe-Johnson, Clinical Director for Heartlinks, “but holidays do not necessarily have to be all sad and these workshops can help teach you how to cope with your seasonal grief”.
The community is invited to come discover ways to help not just get through the holidays but to work through grief at a deeper level than ever. The hope is that the information provided during this time together will help the community through the difficult time of having lost a loved one. There is no timeline for grief, and therefore all are invited, whatever the circumstances of their loss.
Heartlinks is providing two opportunities for the public to attend a Grief and the Holidays workshop:
- November 4, 2019 at 5 pm at Gloria – Casa de Vino (150 Division Street Grandview, WA)
- November 5, 2019 at 5 pm at Fieldstone Memory Care (575 N Young Street Kennewick, WA)
