Lower Cape Fear Hospice offering no-cost grief workshop on supporting those grieving

ELIZABETHTOWN — Lower Cape Fear Hospice will offer a 90-minute grief workshop, “Supporting a Griever” on Tuesday, Aug. 8, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the Bladen County office, located at 166 W. Broad St. in Elizabethtown. Pre-registration is required by calling 910-515-6689.

“It’s often hard to know what to say or do when someone you care about is grieving,” Melissa Rogers, LCFH bereavement counselor, said. “This workshop will help people embrace the opportunity to confidently provide support as they apply various tips learned for helping others through grief, loss and bereavement.”

Many 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 December. Each will focus on a specific aspect of grief and the grieving process.

Lower Cape Fear Hospice is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing the highest level of care and comfort to patients with life-limiting illness; support and counseling to families; and education to the community. For more information, visit lcfh.org.
