Sign-up for Brave Hearts Children’s Program


NEW HARTFORD — Hospice & Palliative Care, Inc., 4277 Middle Settlement Road, will hold its Brave Hearts Children’s Program in Oneida and Herkimer County this spring.

The group is for children between the ages of 6-12 years-old who have lost a parent, grandparent, or special person in their life.

The group utilizes arts and crafts to help children recognize their own grief, understand their feelings, express them in a healthy manner, and give and receive support.  

The Oneida County group will meet Thursdays starting April 9 for eight consecutive weeks from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Hospice & Palliative Care, Inc. office. Parents are requested to come at 5:45 p.m. the first week in order to attend a 15-minute parent orientation session.

Dates and times for the Herkimer County Group will be announced and it will be held at the Valley YMCA at 83 E. Main St., Mohawk. 

To register or learn more, call Adrian Bartholomeo at 315-735-6487, ext. 1070 by April 2.

There is no charge for bereavement groups or workshops. Donations are appreciated.
