Free grief workshop ahead of the holidays

TOLEDO — Hospice of Northwest Ohio will facilitate a workshop for individuals and families who are grieving the death of a loved one on Nov. 6 from 1 to 3:00 p.m. Being held at Hospice of Northwest Ohio’s Toledo Hospice Center, the program will enable participants to interact with others to explore thoughts and feelings; and share ideas about finding comfort amidst grief and holiday stress.
