The Shed Recognizes National Child Grief Awareness
Monday, December 31, 2018
Also as part of National Hospice Month, Serenity will be participating in National Child Grief Awareness. “People often don’t realize that children grieve,” said Cathy Warren Bereavement Coordinator for Serenity. “Their grief is different but should be worked through just as an adult. A child also needs to find their new normal without a loved one.” Serenity invites anyone to drop by The Shed in downtown Oregon (131 N. 3rd ST.) with a child who has experienced the death of a loved one. Even if it is the child’s friend’s mom or someone you consider somewhat distanced from the child, he/she will still have questions. The Shed will be offering simple activities to help the child work through their grief. Stop by anytime M-F 9-4:30 or to make an appointment by phone and ask for Cathy Warren. 815-732-2499.
