Bereavement Information Evening
Venue: Solas Cancer Support Centre, Waterford Date: Tuesday, March 27th 2018 Time: 7.00pm – 9.00pm (Registration from 6:45pm)
Solas Cancer Support Centre & Anam Cara, the all-Ireland organisation providing support services to bereaved parents and families, is hosting a Bereavement Information Evening in Waterford. This event gives parents an opportunity to hear an experienced bereavement professional talk about the many challenges their family may face after the death of a son or daughter.
Please note this event is open to all bereaved parents, regardless of the age of their child or the circumstances of their death.
If you have attended a previous Bereavement Information Evening, we would encourage you to come again because each time you will hear something that will help you along the difficult and challenging journey of grief. There will also be time after the talk to interact with other bereaved parents.
