Thursday, October 8 topic: What I Wish Others Knew About Grief
The death of a child impacts an entire family. This special program is designed to recognize and support the unique grief experienced by
grandparents and other close adult extended family members when a child dies.
Each session of this program will cover a pre-selected topic, while also having time for open discussion. Grandparents, aunts and uncles will have the option to share their family’s story, along with feelings, thoughts and concerns. Participants will receive support for their own loss, as well as ideas of how they can be present to the grief of their family members.
The Living with Grief Grandparent/Aunt/Uncle program serves grieving grandparents and close adult extended family, who have experienced the death of a grandchild or family member who died in “childhood” (preterm birth to approximately age 25). The Living with Grief Parent and Youth programs are held concurrently, helping to meet the needs of the entire family.
This program is free of charge and open to all grandparents/adult extended family in the greater community — families do not have to have been cared for in the Children’s Minnesota system to participate. New participants welcomed. Registration is requested.
Parking will be validated
