Valley Hospice

program detailed

Often after the loss of a loved one, people wonder how they will "make it" through the holiday season. Valley Hospice is here to help with its "How Will I Get Through the Holidays," program.

Valley Hospice will host two evenings dedicated to dealing with the stress and anxiety that occurs, before, during, and after the holiday season.

The program will be held Thursday in the cafeteria at Trinity East, Steubenville, and Nov. 7 in the nurses residence living room at Ohio Valley Medical Center, Wheeling. Each session will last from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. For information, call Judy Dietrich at Valley Hospice at (740) 859-5650 or toll free at 877-HOSPICE.

"During these times, you are intensely aware of "the hole" in your heart where the physical presence of your loved one once was," said Carole Tarr, community bereavement coordinator for Valley Hospice. "Anticipation of any holiday or special day is usually much worse than the actual experience."

The program will help participants identify emotions, modify traditions, and change expectations.

There will also be an opportunity for participants to hear how grieving people got through the holidays after the loss of a loved one.
