How the Grief Stole Christmas - A Workshop for Families Experiencing Loss

Saturday, December 7, 2019
10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
If your family has recently experienced the loss of a loved one, the approaching Holidays may be a difficult time.  How do we celebrate when we feel so sad?  How do we continue our family traditions without this person?  Who will host the holiday dinner?  These concerns can create stress and add to the burden of your grief.

This workshop for families with young children will explore these issues and provide strategies for managing grief and the holidays.  Families meet together, then children and adults attend their own breakout session and then all come together to wrap up.  Groups are facilitated by PPHPC Grief Counselors and Volunteers.  Dinner is provided.  Registration required 719.633.3400 ext. 6530 or DKinnan@PikesPeakHospice.org


Commemoration is deeply rooted in the culture of Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care. We know how important it is for family and friends to have opportunities to remember their loved one and even reconnect with staff members. Services include a number of commemorative celebrations throughout the year, including our annual Commemorative Celebration (held the first Saturday after Memorial Day), Tribute Wall Memorial Receptions and Trees of Life Tree Lighting Ceremony.
