Coping with Grief over the holidays
Updated: Nov 29, 2022
It has been imprinted on our psyche from a young age that the holidays are times for family and loved ones. But what if a family member or loved one dies? You don’t feel much like celebrating. How on earth can anyone expect you to be in a cheerful mood when you are in mourning?
For many people this is the hard part of grieving, this is when we miss our loved one the most—during the holidays. Holidays magnifies the loss. The sadness deepens and the loneliness can feel so isolating.
The need for support maybe greatest during the holidays, at the Fort Nelson Hospice Society—hosted at the Hospice Centre—we have grief support groups running Mondays at 1 pm & Thursdays at 10:30 am
Plus Kathleen Olson (Hospice Coordinator) is available for grief support sessions at more convenient times for individuals who can’t make the grief groups.
