Lake Regional Health System will host “Coping with Grief During the Holidays” at 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, in the hospital’s third floor conference rooms.
This commemorative event is for people who have lost a loved one and are wondering how they will get through the holiday season. The session will include a reflection by the Lake Regional chaplain, as well as tips for coping with the holidays, keepsake ideas and insights to understanding grief.
Dorothy Dille, the keynote speaker, will share how she has managed her grief after her husband of 33 years, Glenn, passed away in December 2016. Following Dille’s presentation, all attendees will be invited to participate in a simple ritual to honor their loved ones. They then will have the opportunity to talk and share with each other over some light refreshments.
“Whether your loss is recent or happened years ago, Lake Regional invites you to attend this event,” said Jill Wilke, R.N., M.S., CPLC, Lake Regional’s director of Palliative Care, Home Health & Hospice. “You will find support, gather with others who understand your feelings and receive helpful advice on getting through the holidays in a hopeful way.”
Lake Regional also offers a monthly grief support and a variety of educational programming during the year, on such topics as diabetes, heart disease and arthritis. Several health fairs and screenings also are held annually throughout the lake area. For information on upcoming events and the grief support group, visit www.lakeregional.com/events.
