Popular guest speaker Emmy Myers returns to the annual Managing Grief During the Holidays program offered by Dearborn County Hospital Home Health & Hospice. Managing Grief is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 5, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. in the Ohio Room of Dearborn County Hospital in Lawrenceburg.
The seminar, which is free of charge and open to the public, is designed to help individuals as well as families deal with the issue of grief during special occasions and holidays, such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. Tim Heller, MSW, LCSW, DCH Hospice Bereavement Coordinator, will lead the program. Mrs. Myers, a widow and a former participant of the DCH Hospice Good Grief series, has spoken at the program for several years.
“The holidays, when most people are celebrating family togetherness, can be an extremely difficult time for those coping with the loss of a loved one,” explained Mr. Heller. “This program is designed to help individuals combat loneliness and to reassure them that it is acceptable and appropriate to participate in and enjoy holiday events.”
Reservations are requested by Friday, Nov. 4, although walk-ins are welcome. For more information or to register for Managing Grief During the Holidays, please call Mr. Heller at 812-537-8192 or 800-676-5428.
