Death of a Companion Pet - 27 November 2019 - 10am-12:30pm
The Palmer\s Cafe/The Central, Claremont Street, Shrewsbury SY1 1QG
 
The death of a companion pet can be quite devastating to those who have developed a special bond with their dog, cat or other pet. Deep feelings of grief are natural. However, some people will find it difficult to express their sadness, or console a person who has lost a pet. This talk from the death education expert, Dr Judith Wester, will cover coping with, consoling, and explaining pet death to others. 
 
The Class will cover topics such as: 
  • Why does pet loss hurt so much?
  • Seniors grieving the death of a pet
  • Making the decision to euthanize a pet
  • Explaining pet euthanasia to children
  • Pet Cemeteries/Funerals
  • Some coping strategies
  • Should you get another pet?
 
Afterward people are invited to stay for tea/cake (additional fee) and talk with each other.
 
Advanced Booking is Essential - £37.50
 
Class fees go to support our Life Lessons Death Education programme for young people.
