Tampa Bay Times: LifePath Hospice Extends 'Campfire Counseling' to Caregivers

Manager Brooke Taylor speaks with the parents and caregivers at LifePath Hospice in Tampa during their inaugural Caregiver Campfire Chat. More than 100 of their children are attending Camp Circle of Love, and annual trip for grieving children who have recently lost a parent, sibling or close relative.


Camp Circle of Love celebrated 25 years this time around and it was the fifth year LifePath Hospice conducted the send-off event, but the events included a new component. Caregivers said their final goodbyes to their campers with a few tears welling up in their eyes at the April 28 sendoff. Once the campers lined up and boarded buses for the campsite in Brooksville, the mood shifted. For the first time, LifePath Hospice offered parents and guardians the opportunity to work through their own grief with a Caregiver Campfire Chat.
