Free grief workshop April 22

Tear Soup: A Recipe for Healing is the title of a free bereavement workshop offered by Great River Home Health and Hospice. Tear Soup: A Recipe for Healing is scheduled at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 22, at Great River Hospice House, 1306 S. Washington Road, West Burlington. The event will conclude with a soup lunch.

Based on the book Tear Soup, the workshop will provide an understanding of grief and suggestions for working through grief and helping others with their grief. Participants will learn how to perform the “art” of grieving and how to fill the void in life left by a loved one’s death.

Great River Hospice social worker Melissa Claassen, L.M.S.W., will present the program.

“This program is as much for people who want to understand grief and reach out to others to help with their grief, as it is for those who are grieving themselves,” said Claassen.

Registration is required. For more information, or to register, please call Great River Home Health and Hospice at (319) 768-3350 or toll-free (877) 404-4766.
