Help for Children Who are Grieving through the Holidays


Attleboro, MA - Holidays can be difficult for those who have experienced loss, especially children. Do you know a child who has experienced a loss and may be grieving? Do you want to find a place where children who have experienced loss can safely express inner thoughts and explore greater understanding of their feelings at an age appropriate level? Community VNA Hospice & Palliative Care can help.

Registration is now open for Kids’ Club, a one-day workshop to be held Tuesday, December 11th from 3:30 to 5:00 PM at Community VNA, 10 Emory Street, Attleboro, MA. Kids’ Club is designed to address the unique bereavement needs of children ages five to 13. Participating children are guided by experienced hospice bereavement counselors who specialize in working with grieving children. Activities may include art therapy, simple crafts, creating memory books, story sharing and thoughtful discussions. Kids sharing with kids is highly encouraged and supported.

This one and one-half hour workshop is free and open to the public. Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, or to register by December 4th, contact Glenn Rounseville, Spiritual and Bereavement Care Coordinator. Email or, call 508.222.0118, ext. 1372.
