For those who are experiencing their first holiday following the loss of a loved one, the emotions of the holiday season can be overwhelming. To help, Pathways of Hope at Ohio’s Hospice of Butler & Warren Counties is offering Hope for the Holidays, a holiday grief support program.
Open to any member of the community who has lost a loved one, Hope for the Holidays provides grieving individuals and families an opportunity to honor loved ones who have died. This presentation by the bereavement counseling staff will celebrate and honor lost loved ones and offer insight into ways to cope with grief during the emotionally charged holiday season. Light refreshments will be served, and participants will receive a keepsake ornament. The program is free of charge thanks to the generosity of community support.
Hope for the Holidays will be held on Thursday, Nov. 21, from 7 to 8 pm, at the Ohio’s Hospice of Butler & Warren Counties Team and Staff Center (5940 Long Meadow Dr., Franklin, OH 45005).
Due to limited seating, reservations are required. When making a reservation, attendees are asked to indicate the number attending. To make a reservation, call Pathways of Hope at 937.258.4991.
