‘The Upcoming Holidays,’ Third Thursday Chats

“Third Thursday Chats” take place each month at Hospice House of the Carolina Foothills in Landrum. Each month, the focus is on a different topic.

This coming Thursday, Nov. 15, the topic is “The Upcoming Holidays.”

Holidays can be especially challenging for those grieving the loss of a loved one. In recognition of this, Hospice of the Carolina Foothills offers a safe and confidential environment for those who have lost someone close in the past few years. HoCF Bereavement Care Manager Shannon Slater will facilitate the program. It meets at 10:30 a.m. at Hospice House of the Carolina Foothills in Landrum.

Call during the holidays, and throughout the year, to learn about the many forms of support available for those who are coping with the death of someone they love. Contact Slater at 828-894-7000, 864-457-9122, or
