Is your child or adolescent missing a special loved one this holiday season? If so please consider having them join us to learn about the grief process, as well as participate in an activity to honor their loved one.

Groups and programs are open to the community at no charge, and participants do not have to be Hospice families. Facilitated by Sarah Titman, MSW.

Community members and patients’ loved ones are invited to join Hospice & Community Care to pay tribute to loved ones in an atmosphere of reflection and hope during this non-denominational service. Held each spring and fall, the service provides families the opportunity to reflect, honor, and remember their loved ones.
The exact date will be posted closer to the service.

Children’s Services

According to the Journal of Death and Dying 1 in 5 children will experience the death of someone close to them by age 18. Children and adolescents may be more sensitive to the conditions that follow loss than adults. Hospice & Community Care offer multifaceted support programs for children and teens.

The Butterfly Feelings Exercise is a simple coloring exercise to help you explore and discuss feelings with your child in a fun and engaging way.

“How to Talk with Children And Adolescents About Grief, Loss, and Bereavement”

by Sarah Hopkins, MSW

Sarah Hopkins, MSW, and instructor at Winthrop University, has written a free resource to help guide adults talk to children and adolescents about grief.

Project HOPE art pieces are exhibited in the Children’s Gallery on our Campus. The Gallery allows participants to see their creations in a public setting, in addition to raising community awareness of grieving children and teens. Children who are guided and supported through the grief process learn appropriate ways to express their emotions, are better able to cope with loss now and throughout their lifetime.
