Dealing with the loss of your loved one is stressful. It can be even more stressful during the holiday season. The good news is that help is available.
The Palliative Care Services program in Regina is hosting “Heart 2 Heart for the Holidays,” an evening service to help bereaved people navigate their way through the holiday season. Anyone who would like support in coping with a loved one’s death this holiday season is welcome to attend. The two-hour event, being held in Regina, will have guest speakers who will provide messages of hope, special music, as well as a candle lighting portion and will allow people experiencing loss to be in the company of others who are in a similar situation.
“This event is open to everyone across the province to attend, and is being provided at no cost. We understand that grieving is a difficult process and it can be even more stressful during the holidays,” said Marlene Jackson, Volunteer and Bereavement Coordinator for Palliative Care Services in Regina. “There is an expectation in society that the holidays should be a happy, festive time. When you are grieving, this is often not the case. This service will help people realize they are not alone in their suffering. We hope they will find support in being with others who understand.”
A choir performing at the event will be made up of interested volunteers, including Saskatchewan Health Authority employees and families. If you, or anyone in your family would like to join, please contact Marlene Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
