Kids' Club - a Bereavement Program for Children

Posted by mgallacher

On Saturday, September 7th from 9:30AM to 12:00PM, Community VNA Hospice and Palliative Care is hosting a grief program. Kids’ Club is designed to help children ages 5 - 13 to deal with the loss of a parent, sibling, grandparent, aunt, uncle, friend, classmate or other significant person in their life. Guided by experienced grief specialists, the children explore and express their feelings as they participate in activities such as crafts, fabric painting, creating memory books and sharing. A supportive and understanding atmosphere is provided along with snacks.

Pre-registration is required. This program is free and open to the public. Please call 508-222-0118 or 800-220-0110. Meetings are held at Community VNA, 10 Emory Street in Attleboro MA. For more information, please visit the agency website at www.communityvna.com. Kids’ Club is funded under grant support from the TJX Foundation.

Community VNA Hospice and Palliative Care offers grief support to anyone in the community who has had a loss through death, not just for those who were cared for by hospice. Grief professionals, who specialize in loss for adults and children, provide suggestions and sources of support. They are a resource also for those seeking guidance on how to support others who are grieving.
