Colchester East Hants Hospice launches Holiday programming

For immediate release

The Christmas season often reminds many of us that someone special is missing. It is during our biggest holidays that feelings of loss and grief can intensify. Finding a way to pause and remember loved ones who have died is a wonderful way to cope with those emotions.

“The Angels Remembered Tree, a Hospice run bereavement program, provides people a moment to reflect on the loss of a loved one during the holidays, ” says Craig Johnson, Executive Director for the Colchester East Hants Hospice Society.

The annual Angels Remembered campaign will run from December 5th-22nd at the Truro Mall and the Hospice Centre at 89 Queen Street; December 8th-23rd at the Lloyd E. Matheson Centre in East Hants; and December 12th-22nd at the Foodland in Tatamagouche.

People can visit the Angels Remembered tree nearest to them to place an angel on the tree in someone’s memory. A volunteer or the staff member will be available to assist visitors. Each year thousands of Angels are placed on trees around the region in memory of loved ones.

In addition to the Angel’s Remembered program, Hospice is also pleased to offer our annual workshop, Coping with the Holidays, on December 8th at 5:30pm at the Elmsdale Branch of the Colchester East Hants Public Library. The workshop, facilitated by Janet Allan, Hospice Social Worker, offers a blend of support and information on how to manage the holiday season after the death of a loved one. “This session will give people some coping tools as well as some much needed support,” states Allan. The session is free of charge.

The media and the public are invited to join us in sharing launch of the Angel’s Remembered program on Monday December 5th at 2:00 pm. The event will take place at the Hospice Centre at 89 Queen Street, Truro. The first angel will be placed on an Angel’s Remembered Tree, and hot chocolate and cookies will be served.
