The St. Joseph's Hospice team opens the public grief support ceremony.
"This is the first time that we've placed the event on site to allow more people to be released and made public. You do not have to be a member of our clients," said Orley Culverhouse, Caring Hearts Childrens Program coordinator, local children and their sixteen-year-olds who have experienced the death of a loved one. "We hope for a good attendance and we use it so that people know what we offer."
The event will be held on December 11th at 6:30 am by addressing the holidays. 8:30 Children's families who have experienced the loss are involved in the memorial gingerbread house decoration and community commemorative candle light. Provides information and resources for the holiday season.
"Holidays are a very difficult time for people, so the biggest thing we can do is just prepare and think," said Culverhouse. "What traditions are very important and we want to keep in mind, what traditions do you want to change or completely get rid of? Let yourself be allowed to do this and make this plan ahead of time with your family."
The Hospice program team serves 400-500 clients annually, free of charge, in informing and educating the community.
According to Culverhouse, the most important thing is for families to mourn, finding a way to respect the dead person.
"When someone dies, their bodies die, but we do not have contact with them," he said. "And so much we do in Hospice, we only encourage people to continue this relationship."
The mummies of adults are held in Lambton Meadowview Villa, together with the Central Lambton Family Health Team, on December 10, at 6:30 pm. 8:30 pm Interested parties can use RSVP at 519-882-2500.
