VISALIA, CA – Kaweah Health Hospice’s Bereavement Team will present “Grief and the Holidays,” in November and December, a free workshop to help those who are experiencing the holidays after a loved one has died.

“No matter a person’s age or who has died, the holidays can be difficult and confusing for those who are facing their first holiday after a loved one has passed,” said James Susee, Kaweah Health’s Bereavement Coordinator. “You are beginning a new chapter and, like a book, the next chapter is built on the previous chapter. The workshop will help guide people on how to get through this chapter of life and how to begin looking at how the next chapter can be great.”

Attendees will meet others on similar journeys and explore how they can honor their loved ones and holiday traditions after the loss. For more information and to preregister, call (559) 733-0642 or e-mail

The classes will take place on the following dates and times at Kaweah Health Hospice, 623 W. Willow Avenue in Visalia:

  • 5:30-7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 10
  • 2-3:30 p.m., Monday, Nov. 14
  • 5:30-7 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 1
