Sup­port for be­reaved par­ents

The Argus - - NEWS -

Anam Cara, the or­gan­i­sa­tion that sup­ports be­reaved par­ents, will hold a Be­reave­ment In­for­ma­tion Evening on Wed­nes­day Septem­ber 19 from 7.30pm to 9.30pm in the Carnegie Court Ho­tel, Swords, Co. Dublin.

The event gives par­ents an op­por­tu­nity to hear a pro­fes­sional, ex­pe­ri­enced in be­reave­ment sup­port, talk about the many chal­lenges fam­i­lies have to face into af­ter the death of their son or daugh­ter. A guest speaker ex­pe­ri­enced in sup­port­ing be­reaved par­ents will talk for about forty min­utes. Af­ter­wards there will be an op­por­tu­nity to speak/lis­ten to other be­reaved par­ents or to speak to the pro­fes­sional.

Anam Cara CEO Sharon Vard stressed that this event is open to all be­reaved par­ents ‘re­gard­less of the age your child died, the cir­cum­stances of their death or whether the death was re­cent or not. Anam Cara gives be­reaved mums and dads a chance to meet and con­nect with other be­reaved par­ents in a safe and com­fort­able set­ting. Here you can find a level of sup­port and un­der­stand­ing that can be dif­fi­cult for fam­ily and friends to of­fer.’
