Hospice of Michigan Hosting Two Workshops For People Coping with Grief This Holiday Season

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. (Nov. 6, 2019) – Hospice of Michigan (HOM), the state’s original and largest not-for-profit hospice provider, is hosting two grief support workshops for people who are coping with grief after losing a loved one. Both of these free events will be held at the Bloomfield Hills Hospice of Michigan office, located at 43097 Woodward Ave., Suite 102.

  • ‘Adult Loss of a Parent’ will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 13 from 6 until 7:30 p.m. and will offer supportive discussion and techniques for adults who are coping with the loss of a parent.
  • ‘Coping with the Holidays’ from 6 until 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 3 will provide support for anyone who is grieving during a season of family, memories and traditions. ‘Coping with the Holidays’ will offer discussion on common challenges and provide techniques to help attendees handle grief and find comfort, such as:
    • Planning ahead: Those who seem to have the most difficulty with the holidays are often people who have given little thought to the emotional challenges they will encounter.
    • Taking care of yourself: Exercising, eating a balanced diet and getting a proper amount of rest.
    • Lowering expectations: Going easy on yourself and trying not to overextend in order to reduce overall stress.

Hospice of Michigan knows how difficult it can be to cope with losing a loved one during this time of year. ‘Adult Loss of a Parent’ and ‘Coping with the Holidays’ are among the many free grief support services Hospice of Michigan offers, providing a supportive environment for those struggling with their loss. Hospice of Michigan’s grief support programs are open to everyone in the community dealing with the loss of a loved one, regardless of whether they received care from HOM.

Advanced registration is required to attend either of these free grief support workshops. To sign-up, please contact Claudia Been at cbeen@HOM.org or (248) 334-1323.
