GRIEF RELIEF: A Family Experience

When a loved one dies, all family members are affected. Each person grieves the loss in his or her own unique way with different intensities in his or her own time.

To help families work together as they grieve the death of a loved one, Community Hospice of Northeast Florida presents a day-long, family workshop designed for children, teens, parents and grandparents to work together to:
  • Define what the loss means to them
  • Identify their feelings
  • Develop healthy coping skills
  • Learn how to provide emotional support within the family system
This workshop will include exercises and discussions designed to generate open family dialogue and promote healing.
