Coping With Grief Over the Holidays

Monday, December 10, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Salt Spring Hospice is hosting a free community event—Coping with Grief over the Holidays. This event, co-sponsored by the Salt Spring Island Public Library, will offer suggestions for navigating the holidays and making plans that are right for you.
Holidays are often difficult for anyone who has experienced the death of someone loved. Rather than being times of family togetherness, sharing and thanksgiving, holidays can generate feelings of sadness, overwhelm, lethargy and emptiness.
Since love does not end with death, holidays may result in a renewed sense of personal grief. Society encourages you to join in the holiday spirit, but all around the sounds, sights and smells trigger memories of the one loved, who has died.
