2022 Aftercare Workshops

The Living Legacy Foundation of Maryland (The LLF) Aftercare Team has decided to continue offering our workshops on a virtual platform into 2022. This decision has been made to minimize risk and protect our staff, partners, and community. We will continue to offer free virtual workshops to support those experiencing grief and loss until we feel safe to meet in person once again. Please check our listings below or follow The LLF on social media (linked at the bottom of this page) for information and updates on workshop offerings.

Please feel free to contact us with questions or concerns at aftercare@thellf.org.

The Aftercare Team strives to ensure that our donor and donor-in-spirit families, as well as the Maryland community, have access to grief resources and support. We offer educational and supportive grief workshops throughout the year, provide grief counseling, and maintain a website with a variety of grief resources throughout Maryland: Community Grief Resources and Support at www.cgras.org

Are you ready to attend a workshop?

Ask yourself...

  • Do you feel you would benefit from peer support?
  • Are you comfortable hearing and sharing personal stories about loss? 

If you answered "yes" to both of the above, then a workshop may be beneficial to you. 

Please note that the workshops offered by The LLF are both educational and supportive in nature. While they provide a safe space for individuals to share certain experiences and feelings, if you are struggling with particularly difficult emotions and need help processing some of the more sensitive details of your loss, it is recommended that you schedule an individual counseling session prior to attending a workshop. If you have additional questions or are in need of grief support or resources, please reach out to a member of our Aftercare Team at aftercare@thellf.org or 410.242.7000. 

Workshops held at The LLF office are handicap accessible. 

Please arrive up to 15 minutes early for events to get checked in. 

*Indicates a particular workshop is reserved for The LLF donor and donor-in-spirit families. 

The LLF office is located a short walk from the yellow line bus UMBC via Kaiser route (Kaiser Medical Center stop). For more information, please look at the MTA website.

Hope and Healing During the Holidays    

Sunday, November 13, 2022 | 1-3 p.m. | Held in-person and virtually at The LLF office

The holidays can be an especially difficult time for those grieving the loss of a loved one. Whether it's a recent loss or one you've been coping with for a while, grief can feel more challenging during times when you're expected to be happy and joyful. With the help of our grief professionals, we will be hosting our annual holiday workshop: Hope and Healing During the Holidays. 

Please join us for a thoughtful discussion on ways to communicate needs with family and friends, explore self-care strategies and discover the importance of rituals. Tasty seasonal treats and coffee will be provided. There will be a separate activity for children, ages 5-15.

Writing Your Loved One’s Recipient(s)     

Sunday, December 4, 2022 | 12-2 p.m. | Held in-person at The LLF office

The decision to write your loved one’s recipient(s) is a personal and potentially emotional one to make. Many people have questions about what to say, when the right time is, whether recipients are ready to hear from donor families, and how the process works. If reaching out to your loved one’s recipient(s) is something you are considering, please join us for this workshop on Sunday, December 4, from 1-3 p.m. We will explain the process, answer questions, and provide time and supplies to work on your letter if you wish to complete one.   

RSVP for Writing Your Loved One's Recipient(s) by 12/1

 

If you have any questions or concerns prior to the event or need to cancel your registration, please contact us at 410-242-7000 ext. 1147 or email Aftercare@TheLLF.org.
