Akron, Ohio – December 21, 2015 – Akron Ohio hospice holds special event called “Blue Christmas” for the purpose of honoring loved ones who have passed while under hospice care. Harbor Light Hospice, who provides hospice care in Akron, Ohio formed the event with the dual intention of helping former patient family members cope with grief and celebrate the holidays as a community.
The event, “Blue Christmas”, brought former hospice patient family members together for a full evening so that they could share their experiences as part of a community. The purpose of the event was to help families discover that they can still find joy during the holiday season despite the difficult task of managing the pain of loss. The event provided a healthy and supportive environment for families to grieve and acknowledge their loss.
Grief During The Holidays
Grief coincides with loss and the holiday season can be especially difficult for families who have recently lost a loved one. Families may have difficulty celebrating their first holiday season without their loved one. This is a natural part of the grieving process. There is no right or wrong way to grieve and every individual and/or family will grieve differently. Hospice provides bereavement services following the death of a patient in order to help families cope with their new loss.
