Hospice plans Mother’s Memory breakfast

NORWICH – There is a special place in every child’s heart for his or her Mother, whether that child is five or fifty-five. Mother’s Day is supposed to be a day of celebration, a day to thank Mom for her years of love and care. It is also the day when phone usage is at its highest, and the busiest day of the year for restaurants. However, that day can be painful for those whose mothers have passed away. “Everyone grieves differently,” acknowledges, Brenda Birdsall, Hospice & Palliative Care of Chenango County’s Bereavement Coordinator. “Some people may chose to isolate themselves on Mother’s Day, pushing memories aside because those thoughts still feel like an emotional bruise that needs time to heal; while other people want to celebrate like they did for years, but don’t know exactly what to do.” Birdsall has planned just such an event for mother-less adults who want to remember Mom in a meaningful way.
