Asheboro, NC – Hospice of Randolph County is glad to announce its 9th annual offering of the bereavement event entitled “Surviving Hearts”. This special program is designed for those who are grieving the loss of a spouse and correlates with the Valentine’s Day season.
Dr. Rodney Otwell, Hospice Chaplain, commented on the program: “The loss of a life’s partner is unlike any other loss we will face in life. So much of our identity and personal history is wrapped up in the person to whom we commit to share our lives. When that person dies, we not only lose them, we lose a part of ourselves. The task of mourning well is doing the work necessary to rediscover who we are in light of such a significant loss.”
The evening will consist of an educational component as well as time for personal reflection and feedback from the group and facilitator. This special program is open to the public and will be held on Thursday, February 19 from 6:00pm – 7:30pm at the Hospice Educational Building at 416 Vision Drive, Asheboro. For more information and to Register for this FREE event, contact Dr. Otwell at Hospice of Randolph County:(336) 672-9300 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
