'Facing the Holidays After a Loss' Presentation of the 'Living through Loss' Series


The third presentation of the “Living through Loss” series will be held on Monday, November 19 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and titled “Facing the Holidays After a Loss.” This presentation will take place in the Marathon Auditorium at Blanchard Valley Hospital located at 1900 South Main Street in Findlay.

“Facing the Holidays After a Loss” will focus on how the bereaved can navigate the holiday season while enduring the pain of losing a loved one. Theresa Scherger, social worker at Bridge Home Health and Hospice, a division of Blanchard Valley Health System, will be presenting with an opportunity for discussion to follow.

“Living Through Loss” is a nine-month educational series that focuses on the issues surrounding the death of a loved one. Each monthly presentation is open to the public and registration is not required. Presentations are held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Marathon Auditorium at Blanchard Valley Hospital. Presentations provide information related to the grief process and offer opportunities for discussion. Although the thought of speaking up in a group can be intimidating, many attendees find the discussion helpful as they discover their questions and concerns are similar to others. A bereavement expert is available to speak with attendees in private following the presentation. 

This series is sponsored by Bridge Home Health and Hospice. For questions, to learn upcoming dates or to have a full program brochure sent to you, please contact Jill Gilgenbach, bereavement coordinator, at 419.423.5351 or email
