Relationship After Loss – How to navigate dating after the loss of a spouse offered free by The Elizabeth Hospice


Murrieta – Feelings of loneliness after the death of a spouse can be debilitating. And yet, the fear of meeting and forming a bond with someone new often prevents people from moving forward and finding a relationship again.

The Elizabeth Hospice is offering Relationship After Loss, a free workshop for widows and widowers, who are seeking answers to questions like “How will I know when I’m ready to start dating again?” and “Where do I go to meet someone?”

Relationship After Loss will meet Wednesday, May 22, from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Murrieta Senior Center located at 41717 Juniper Street, Murrieta.  Space is limited and attendees are required to register by May 17 by calling (760) 737-2054 or emailing

“Attendees will gain feelings of hopefulness in establishing relationships,” said Michelle Brown, Licensed Marriage and family therapist. “They will also receive valuable information about re-entering the dating world and connect with others who are facing similar circumstances.” Brandi Garcia, Associate Marriage and family therapist, will also facilitate the workshop.

The Elizabeth Hospice makes it easy for people to find the resources they need by providing a variety of grief counseling and support group options are available at multiple locations across San Diego and Southwest Riverside counties. Counseling services are available for individuals, couples, families and children, including those who do not have a patient affiliation with The Elizabeth Hospice.
