Beyond The Casserole: How to Help a Grieving Friend or Loved One

August 27 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

You attended the funeral. You sent a condolence card. You made a donation to charity. You provided a meal. Now what? How helpful are these actions? Are they enough? What more could you do?

When a friend or family member is suffering from a loss, you may find yourself at a loss because you want to help but don’t know how. How can you fix the problem? How can you ease their pain? How can you relieve the burden? Is it possible to make the bereaved feel better or recover faster?

Donna Waddell is a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist who has experience deep personal grief and found resolution, discovering new purpose and joy in life. She will explain loss from the griever’s point of view. Learn what the mourner is going through and what you – as family, friend, neighbor, coworker, concerned member of the community – can do to help.

This is a free event and open to the public.
