Tips for Dealing with Grief This Holiday SeasonPosted on Dec 2nd, 2019 | Perma Link
Dealing with Grief this Holiday Season
For those who are grieving, the holidays may be especially challenging.
Below are some helpful suggestions from our Grief Counseling Center to create a less stressful season for you and your family:
- Set realistic expectations for the holidays. Use a holiday job list to decide what activities and tasks are really important to you and to your family – simplify. Your energy level is low. Focus and concentration may be difficult. Memory is compromised.
- Set realistic goals. Prioritize them and pace yourself. Make a list of what you would like to do, prioritize the items, and ask for help. Set out a timetable for doing those things that are most important to you. Complete one small goal each day.
- Do something new. Your life has changed. Decide with your family whether you want to do things differently or keep traditions the same this year. Should you put up a smaller tree or forget about decorating with lights outside? Should you send holiday cards? What about baking and shopping?
- Avoid alcohol. When one is grieving, the holiday season can be a time of reflection, self-evaluation and loneliness. Alcohol is a depressant. It can aggravate feelings of sadness at not being with your loved one at this time.
- Surround yourself with supportive people. You need people around you who understand your grief and are comfortable with your sadness. Your first inclination may be to withdraw and hide from the world, but too much isolation can prevent you from feeling connected to those sources of love around you. Our Hope for the Holidays program is another opportunity for support.
- Find time for yourself. You also need time to grieve and to be alone with your thoughts and feelings. Balance your day in time alone and time with loved ones and friends. Use your alone time to journal, pray, sleep, or read an inspirational book.
- If you find yourself feeling down during the holidays, try these suggestions:
- Take a quiet walk in a park.
- Drink a cup of hot tea or cocoa.
- Get up early and listen to the birds.
- Contact a good friend and have lunch.
- Read an uplifting book by the fire.
- Listen to some quiet music.
- Go to a holiday event or concert.
- Ask someone to drive you around to see the lights, and just be quiet together.
We're with you this holiday season. Contact us at 336.672.9300 for additional support during this difficult time.

Hospice of the Piedmont and Hospice of Randolph Complete MergerPosted on Oct 1st, 2019 | Perma Link
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – October 1, 2019
Hospice of the Piedmont and Hospice of Randolph complete merger
(High Point & Asheboro, NC) – Effective October 1, the boards of directors of Hospice of the Piedmont and Hospice of Randolph announce that the merger of the two organizations is complete. Since announcing their intent to merge in May 2019, both boards and leadership teams have worked diligently to ensure that the collaboration would result in a solid, mission-driven organization whose continued common commitment is patients, families, staff and community.
Led by former Hospice of the Piedmont President and CEO Trent Cockerham, the agency will operate two campuses and inpatient facilities, Hospice Home at High Point and The Randolph Hospice House. Hospice of Randolph will operate as an affiliate of Hospice of the Piedmont while maintaining its strong position as a healthcare provider in Randolph County.
“With a broader capacity to provide services, Hospice of the Piedmont and Hospice of Randolph will be able to help provide care to more individuals and families each year,” says Cockerham, now CEO of the combined organization.
Over the next several months, Hospice of the Piedmont and Hospice of Randolph will continue to align their brands and create a cohesive position in the healthcare marketplace. Individuals and families currently receiving services will not see a change in their care.
Last year, Hospice of the Piedmont and Hospice of Randolph served more than 2,000 patients across their combined eight-county service area. The combined organization continues to provide in-home hospice care, as well as inpatient services, bereavement services, and palliative care programming.
“As we become one, we know that we will do great things in our community and continue to help individuals and families seek the care they need on the terms they choose,” says Rhonda Moffitt former President and CEO of Hospice of Randolph County. Moffitt will serve as the President/Chief Operating Officer of the combined organization.
Together, Hospice of the Piedmont and Hospice of Randolph are a non-profit organization whose mission is to connect individuals and their families with the care they need on the terms they choose through hospice, palliative, and bereavement services. The agency serves Guilford, Randolph, Davidson, Forsyth and the surrounding counties from its High Point and Asheboro office.
