Anam Cara, the organisation which offers information and support to all bereaved parents, will be facilitating a Parent Support Evening on Thursday 13th June from 7:20pm in the Raddison Blu Hotel, Letterkenny, Co.Donegal.
This event offers parents a safe and comfortable forum where they can connect with other bereaved parents who understand the depth of grief and loss that follows after the death of their precious son or daughter. With Father’s Day approaching at the end of the month it can often be a particularly difficult milestone for a bereaved Dad and it’s important that Anam Cara Support Services and resources are available.
Anam Cara CEO Sharon Vard stressed that this event is open to all bereaved parents regardless of the age of the child or children, the circumstances of their death, or whether this was recent or not.
For those considering attending but unsure, Ms Vard suggests they visit the website, anamcara.ie. “There, in their own time, parents can watch our short videos with testimonies from bereaved parents and couples who have attended Anam Cara events. The videos, which are just four minutes each, show parents interviewed on topics like A Dad’s Grief, Sudden and Traumatic Death, and The Grieving Family
One Dad attending the Donegal group commented that “It was a relief to share and listen to others, it made me feel less alone in my grief”
All Anam Cara services are offered free of charge for as long as necessary.
Please note Anam Cara will take their summer break in July and August. Events will resume in September.
