LCFH to offer no-cost grief workshop for those who have lost a loved one

ELIZABETHTOWN – Lower Cape Fear Hospice will offer a 90-minute grief workshop for those coping with grief. The workshop, Understanding Grief and Loss, will be Tuesday, Feb. 14, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the Bladen County office loocated at 116 W. Broad St. in Elizabethtown.

Pre-registration is required by calling 910-515-6689.

“Grieving is a long and difficult process,” Melissa Rogers, LCFH bereavement counselor, said. “In addition to understanding how stress can take a toll on a person physically, emotionally and spiritually, we need to understand practical guidelines to ease the process.”

The workshop will focus on strategies those grieving can use to help maintain a healthy momentum as they proceed through their grief.

Most people have loved and lost special people in their lives and coping with grief is a challenging process.

“If you and/or your friends and family are having difficulty dealing with the loss of a loved one, we are here to help,” Rogers added. “Throughout the year, we offer compassionate care, educational and enrichment opportunities that support many types of loss in safe and familiar environments. Because of our generous donors, these caring, no cost groups, camps and workshops are available to all. Your donation is always appreciated.”

LCFH’s 90-minute “Navigating Grief” workshops will be offered the second Tuesday of each month through June. Each will focus on a specific aspect of grief and the grieving process.
