I hope that this April newsletter finds you well. However, if you are struggling with your loss and need someone to listen, I am always available to meet with you in your home or in our office. Please feel free to call me to schedule a visit. I am also able to refer you to other resources in the community.
We have some important events in the upcoming months that may help you or your loved ones in coping with your loss.
The first event will be a Celebration of Life Butterfly Release. This event will be held on June 1st. A detailed flyer with more information is included with this newsletter. Remembering our loved one is a very important part of the grief process. We hope that you will join us for this healing time.
Pennyroyal Hospice also has an event called Kamp Sunrise occurring on June 19th. This one day camp will be held at Living Hope Baptist Church in Hopkinsville. The day will be filled with events, games, processing of grief, and a memorial service. We are open to serve children throughout the community who have lost a loved one in the last two years. If you know of a child between 6 and 17 who can benefit from this camp, please feel free to give them our contact information. There is a Kamp Sunrise application on the back of this newsletter.
The final resource that I would like to tell you about is our support group program. We will be beginning a monthly one-session program for the newly bereaved. This will give a brief introduction to grief and suggestions for coping and will explain further the hospice bereavement services available to you. A more detailed six week group will be scheduled later for those interested. More details are listed below.
