Barnabas Health Hospice to Host: “Managing Mother’s and Father’s Day During a Time of Loss”

03/26/2013

New Jersey -- The relationship between a parent and a child is a unique and special bond that lasts a lifetime. As Mother’s and Father’s Day approach (celebrated Sunday, May 13 and Sunday, June 16) a son or daughter who has lost his/her mother and/or father may feel especially sad reflecting on memories of their cherished relationship(s).

In recognition of these important days, and the emotions that may accompany them, Barnabas Health Hospice and Palliative Care Center will host “Managing Mother’s and Father’s Day.” The sessions are open to adult children and their surviving parent.
