Hospice of Michigan to Present Hope After Loss

Brighton, Michigan, March 31, 2016 – Hospice of Michigan will present on Wednesday, April 6 an afternoon of education, support and conversation for those who have experienced the death of a loved one.

The educational presentation will address the difficulty of coping with the loss of a family member or loved one and provide a better understanding of the grief process. Discussion topics include:

  • What makes my grief unique?
  • How do I adjust to change?
  • What is hope and how do I keep it alive?
