CALVERT HOSPICE ANNOUNCES JOURNEYS, A GRIEF SUPPORT GROUP HELPING FAMILIES LEARN HEALTHY WAYS TO GRIEVE

Prince Frederick, MD – Calvert Hospice is pleased to offer Journeys, a support group for families. Journeys focuses on helping families heal after the loss of a loved one. Children meet once a week for 8 weeks to participate in support group activities that will help them process their grief through creative activities, connect with other children who understand, share their experiences in age-appropriate groups, and learn healthy ways to grieve their loss. Adult family members meet at the same time to learn how to help their children grieve in healthy ways while gaining valuable coping skills for dealing with their own grief.

The group will meet on Thursdays from September 27 – November 15, 2018 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm at Trinity United Methodist Church in Prince Frederick. The cost is $25 per child with a $75 maximum for families with multiple children. Scholarships are available, so please do not let a lack of funds prevent you from seeking support for your family’s grief. Pre-registration is required.
