Making Connections Grief Camp

Hospice of Southern Illinois held their 7th annual Making Connections Grief Camp for families affected by a loss on October 22, 2011. Parents and children alike enjoyed a day full of crafts and conversation. Each craft dedicated to the memories of lost loved ones, and conversation educating parents on how to help their children, and themselves through the grieving process. The camp is run by Hospice of Southern Illinois Counseling Department staff, and many dedicated Hospice of Southern Illinois volunteers. Each family returns home with a memento of the day, and each volunteer and staff member leaves with understanding of a life remembered through the voices of their loved ones.

Help us share, educate, and reach out by subscribing to our blog and suggesting it to friends who will spread our message, Hospice of Southern Illinois is here to teach you what hospice is, what we are about, and what we can do for you and your loved ones! No one has to go through the dying process alone. Hospice of Southern Illinois can help!
