Grief, Healing and the Holidays – Ridgefield – FREE

December 6, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Grief, healing and the holidays. Presentation at RVNAhealth

Join Us at Ridgefield Crossings – Open to the Public
Wednesday, December 6th
2:30 – 3:30pm

This holiday season might mark the initial one following the loss of a loved one. The holidays can become hard for many as grief tends to cling to us. It doesn’t just affect us personally; it also becomes intertwined with specific moments and locations.

“Instead of the usual holiday traditions evoking feelings of “comfort and joy,” they tend to resurface memories and provoke emotions that can also bring forth feelings of sorrow and heartache,” says Garrett Walkup, RVNAhealth Manager of Bereavement, Social Work, and Pastoral Care Services.

The lecture will include “how to cope with the emotions and feelings of the season, how to handle holiday traditions, and what to do differently – and the same,” says Walkup.

The program is open to all members of the community and is intended to offer support through the holiday season for those who have experienced a loss.

Address is: Ridgefield Crossings, 640 Danbury Rd, Ridgefield, CT 06877
