Great River Hospice is sponsoring a workshop to help widows and widowers
cope with feelings and experiences associated with the death of a spouse.
Participants will learn about legal concerns, coping skills and tips for
cooking for one.
Table for One: A Workshop for Widows and Widowers is scheduled from 5:30
to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, at Great River Klein Center, 1307 S. Gear
Ave., West Burlington.
The program will be presented by Great River Hospice social workers. A
widow and widower also will speak.
“Losing a spouse can feel like you have lost half your life,”
said Megan Woodard, social worker Great River Hospice. “It’s
something people usually aren’t prepared to face. This workshop
will provide strategies to successfully move through the grief process.”
The program is free and open to the public. A meal will be served. Registration
is required; space is limited. For more information, please call Great
River Hospice at 319-768-3350 or toll-free 877-404-4766.
