In honor of Father’s Day, the grief support program of Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton is offering special support to those who have lost their fathers.
Pathways of Hope at Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton invites members of the public who have lost their father to attend a Father’s Day luncheon on Tuesday, June 14 to honor memories of Dad. The program will be held from 12 noon to 1 pm in the Community Room at Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton. According to Bereavement Counselor Debbie Holt, MS, PCC-S, the Father’s Day program is designed to remember and honor fathers who have been lost in the last year.
“For many, Father’s Day can be a painful holiday for those who have recently lost their Dad,” Holt explains. “While a single event can’t heal the pain, the luncheon will provide opportunities to share with others who are experiencing the same loss and will provide helpful information on how to cope with the grief the holiday brings.”
Honoring will come through the sharing of memories and personal histories. It won’t be necessary to speak the memories if the attendee chooses not to, but setting aside time to reflect on those memories can be very helpful.
Advance reservations are required. Those interested in attending can contact Pathways of Hope at Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton at 937-258-4991.
