How Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice helps
Connections is offered by our Bereavement Care program to children ages 4 to 17 who have suffered the loss of a sibling or parent. Youngsters combine arts and crafts along with memory sharing as they learn to cope with loss and grief on their own terms.
Parents and guardians can participate in parallel sessions where they learn to care for themselves and their children as the family adjusts and adapts to loss.
With the support of professional grief counselors and trained volunteers, Connections provides a safe environment where children and adults:
Feel less lonely by connecting with others who are also grieving
Identify ways grief affects them physically, emotionally and spiritually
Express feelings through art and personal ceremony
