Alive Hospice offers free seminars on grief and the holidays

October 14, 2013

The holiday season can be a very difficult time if you've lost a loved one. How do you approach the first holiday season after a loss? What can we do to make the season more manageable and reduce stress?

Alive Hospice's Grief During the Holidays seminars will show how to do it with tips and strategies from professional grief counselors. They also include a time of remembrance. They're free, and they're coming up soon in Nashville and Murfreesboro.

There is no cost for attending, but reservations are required due to limited space. These seminars are made possible with support from the Heartland Hospice Memorial Fund.

Grief During the Holidays schedule:

Nashville seminars: Nov. 21 and Dec. 5 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Alive Hospice's administrative office, 1718 Patterson St. near downtown Nashville. Registration is required. RSVP online at or by calling 615-963-4732.

Murfreesboro seminar: Dec. 5 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 210 N. Spring St. Registration is required. RSVP online at or by calling 615-346-8680.

Alive Grief Support, the bereavement support program of Alive Hospice, also offers individual grief counseling and support groups for adults and children throughout the year. Anyone can take advantage of these services, regardless of whether a loved one was served by Alive Hospice.

For more information about Alive Grief Support, call 615-963-4732.

NOTE TO MEDIA REPRESENTATIVES: Due to the sensitive nature of grief and loss, Alive Hospice requests no videography or photography at the seminar or interviews with participants. Interviews with an Alive Hospice grief counselor about the seminar and holiday grief may be arranged in advance by contacting Jared Porter at 615-346-8358 or
