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 11 and Sunday, June 15) 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 Van Dyke Hospice will host "Remembering Our Parents." The sessions will be held at Barnabas Health Van Dyke Hospice, Bayview Corporate Center, 1433 Hooper Avenue, Suite 230, in Toms River and are open to adult children and their surviving parent.
Programs will be held as follows. Registration is required. A $10 donation is requested. Please call 732-818-6826 to reserve a space or for more information.
- Remembering Our Parents: Mother's Day Program: Monday, May 4; 6:30 p.m.
- Remembering Our Parents: Father's Day Program: Thursday, June 11; 6 p.m.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a small, wallet-sized photo and several keepsakes (i.e. ticket stud, eye glasses) for use in the creation of a 7x7 memory box.
