OMC Riverways to host Handling the Holidays program for those who have
lost a loved one
Fall is here and the holidays are approaching. This is the time for family
gatherings with a lot of food and celebration. However, for some that
have experienced a recent loss, this time of the year might not seem as
special anymore. Ozarks Medical Center Riverways will host a memorial
program, “Handling the Holidays,”from 5 to 6 p.m., Thursday,
October 22, in the Willard Hunter Classroom, located in the OMC Parkway
Center off Porter Wagoner Boulevard.
The program is open to anyone in the community who has experienced the
loss of a loved one.
“Our guest speaker is Registered Dietician Waynita Cahoj,”said
Erin Honeyfield with OMC Riverways Hospice. “The grieving process
can be a difficult time and not eating well can make you feel worse. This
program will include information about cooking simple, fast, healthy meals,
as well as how to cook for the holidays.”
The event will include drinks and snacks. Guests are invited to bring a
photo or memento of their loved one for display at the memory table.
