Grief can show itself in many forms. Sometimes it can be difficult to understand that what we are feeling is related to the complexities of loss. In an effort to acknowledge the deep challenge of both grieving the loss of a loved one and adjusting to the changes that present with that loss, we invite you to the events listed below. Both the event and the support group are free and open to the public, so please spread the word if you know others who have experienced a loss and may benefit.
Public Presentation on Grief and Loss
A free group workshop designed to help family caregivers take care of themselves while caring for a relative or friend. Whether you are helping a parent, spouse, or friend who lives at home, in assisted living, or in a nursing home, you will benefit from the tools presented in this program. You will learn strategies to better handle the unique caregiver challenges you face, as well as how to reduce stress, communicate more effectively, make tough decisions, and reduce feelings of guilt, anger, and depression.

Carleton College Weitz Cinema
320 Third St. East, Northfield

A 30-minute guided discussion will follow the film, led by Daniel Groll, Carleton College Professor of Philosophy, and Susan Lohmann, Northfield Hospital & Clinics Advance Care Planning Coordinator.
It’s a sure sign of Spring: The annual Northfield Hospital Auxiliary Book Fair. The 2019 Book Fair will take place April 23-27 at the Northfield Ice Arena on Highway 3.
This Northfield tradition got its humble start 58 years ago on the back porch of an Auxiliary member’s home. (At the time, members thought they might collect enough books to do the sale once.)
Now in its 58th year, the Book Fair has raised a total of $1,000,000 since 1961 – including a record $67,532 in sales last year.
Northfield Hospital + Clinics introduces a free class to help individuals understand Advance Care Planning and get a start on their own plan.
Advance Care Planning is the process of thinking about and communicating your health care wishes, in case illness or injury prevents you from decision-making.
