‘Sprouting Hope’ Grief Support Program for Children

Bridge Home Health & Hospice Hosts ‘Sprouting Hope’ Grief Support Program for Children

Bridge Home Health & Hospice, a division of Blanchard Valley Health System, is offering a “Sprouting Hope” grief support program that allows children ages six to 12 to come together with their peers and participate in activities that will help them express their feelings, create lasting memories of their loved ones and have fun. This event will take place on Thursday, May 16 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Marathon Auditorium at Blanchard Valley Hospital.

After the death of a loved one, adults often unintentionally neglect to take the thoughts and emotions of the children in their life into consideration. Although children may appear to be less affected, the loss of a loved one can be difficult for children as they attempt to make sense of the loss and deal with the changes it creates. Sprouting Hope, offered through Bridge’s Group S.T.A.R. (Special Times, Always Remembered), aims to guide children through conversation and creating a keepsake to help them grieve in a healthy manner.

Activities and dinner will be provided to the children at no cost. Family members are encouraged to return to the group at 7:15 p.m. to participate in a closing ceremony and butterfly release.

To secure your child’s attendance, please register by May 10 by calling Bridge Hospice at 419.423.5351 or emailing bridge@bvhealthsystem.org.


Bridge Home Health & Hospice is a division of Blanchard Valley Health System, which provides a total continuum of care to more than 100,000 households in an eight-county area. The Bridge Home Health & Hospice mission is to promote optimal quality of life in the environment of the individual’s choice.
