Connections, A Child and Family Bereavement Program @ Good Shepherd Hospice Administrative Office | Brentwood | New York | United States

The Good Shepherd Hospice has an upcoming Child and Family Bereavement Program, CONNECTIONS.

Good Shepherd Hospice offers a FREE, professionally run, 8-week bereavement group program for children ages 5-17 years old and their caregivers who have experienced a death of a loved one.

Children engage in therapeutic activities that encourage emotional healing, increase understanding, development of healthy coping skills, and preservation of memories.

Adult caregivers attend their own concurrent support group, where they will learn about the nature of their children’s grief and how to best support them
