Family Grief Group
October 5: 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Family Group is for children ages 5-17 and their adult caregiver(s) who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or extended family member. Group begins with a shared meal and large-group activity or game that fosters a fun, supportive environment. Participants are then divided into smaller groups for discussion. Children are paired with other children by age, and adults meet separately providing an opportunity for all to explore their loss experience in an age-appropriate setting. The evening ends with a large group closing activity designed to increase family cohesion and communication.
Family Group meets once per month, and a family may attend for up to 12 months. Each month focuses on a theme related to a specific aspect of the loss experience.
This group is intended for community members who reside in Middle TN, and Alive Hospice family members/friends regardless of location.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, this event is provided free of charge. A suggested donation of $5 per session is appreciated. Groups are held using the Zoom meeting platform. Participants will be asked to have their video and audio on during the group which will allow you to interact with facilitators and attendees. Unlike traditional webinars, we’re keeping our groups small and intimate in an effort to create community and combat the isolation that typically accompanies grief.
Registered attendees will receive the Zoom meeting link via email the day of the event.
