Hospice of the Red River Valley Offers Free Community Grief Programs for Adults and Youth This Fall


Hospice of the Red River Valley is offering several educational grief workshops for adults and youth who have recently experienced the death of a loved one.

How to Help a Grieving Friend is a free class for adults. When a friend loses a loved one through death, we struggle to know what to do. Working through grief involves accepting the loss, experiencing the pain of that loss, and creating a different bond or relationship with the person you have lost. This presentation offers attendees ways to help a friend who has experienced the loss of a loved one. This class is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required one week prior to the class date.
