Event description

Description

Anyone who has ever experienced the companionship of a four-legged (or other animal) friend knows that pets easily become like family to us. To many, pets are the closest family – especially people that are elderly or living solo. Pets can help us thrive through hard times – providing silent, yet unconditional love by way of gestures and presence. So when a pet dies, the loss felt can be extremely painful. The grieving process can be very similar to that felt when a human family member dies. Those around us may sympathize, but navigating a pet loss can often feel especially lonely – because frankly it is not viewed the same as the loss of a human life by society.

Join us for an evening of discussion, expression, and remembrance – through a professionally led group session focused on this specific type of loss, the associated grieving process, and healthy ways to cope and celebrate the legacy of a pet.

Artists will be on-site to provide a special treat for guests! We will invite those who register to send us a photo of your four-legged friend beforehand or bring one to the session for a personalized memento.

*Each session is free to the entire community and will include a formal portion conducted by a licensed professional(s) and conclude with an informational component to provide you a roadmap to take additional steps if desired. Resource packets and giveaways for all attendees. Light refreshments will be served. Free transportation available upon request.*

-------------------------------------------------

We believe that our purpose involves going above and beyond simply conducting funeral services and memorials. We believe that life and death are so intertwined they are inseparable. Our duty to you, therefore, not only encompasses death, but also life after death and loss - continuing care.

Our work places us in a unique position to interact and build relationships with so many. We recognize that our clients, friends, and extended family may desire or need continuing care without even realizing it. As real people, we have real reactions and continuing needs. We work tirelessly to develop new ways to provide you superior service.

The 2018-19 JWWFH Continuing Care Series is a five-part series of FREE sessions. Each session will address a different aspect of grief, how it affects our mental wellness, and what steps to consider if/when it does.

We welcome you to take this journey alongside us.
