    Calvert Hospice announces Gone But Never Forgotten, a FREE seminar that tackles the stigma of overdose loss. The seminar will be held on September 27 from 6 - 8 pm at "The Space," 96 Central Square Drive, Prince Frederick. Topics will include differences while grieving, how to heal after your loss, forgiving yourself and your loved one, complicated grief, and the evening will have a Q & A session with Calvert Hospice bereavement staff.

    Hospice Bridges Support Group Begins September 27

    Calvert Hospice announces that the next session of Bridges, our support group for children ages 6-17 and adult family members who are grieving. The 8-week session begins on September 27 and continues each Wednesday until November 22. The group will meet at Trinity United Methodist Church in Prince Frederick from 6:00 - 7:30 pm.

    Children and teens have discussions in age-appropriate peer groups and learn to connect with others who share a similar experience. They will enjoy creative activities, learn coping skills, gain knowledge about supporting each other, and have an opportunity to share their experiences and stories with others. Adults meet with experienced Calvert Hospice Bereavement staff at the same time and learn coping skills, share their experiences, and learn how to support the children under their care through the grieving process.
