Grief never completely goes away, but over time, it become easier to endure. It’s important for families to give themselves and their children permission to feel happy again. Be assured that the memory of a loved one will continue to live on in everyone’s hearts as the family moves forward. You might try some of these ideas:

In addition to traditional PARAkids Summer Camp, Tuscaloosa County Park & Recreation Authority announces that it will offer four specialty camps this summer.

Every day, the staff and DCH uses thousands of masks. Commercially made masks for front line providers are in high demand across the globe as their protective properties are known and tested. The community-sewn masks have become an essential part in DCH’s strategy to conserve the commercially made masks for direct patient care. Yet, DCH’s supply of commercially made masks has continued to dwindle. 

On June 11, Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox amended an executive order originally issued on March 13 to extend the non-payment grace period for city utilities. The amended order extends this grace period for another 60 days until September 30, 2020.

Since our first confirmed COVID-19 case on March 13, the City of Tuscaloosa’s focus has been to protect the health of our citizens and the capacity of DCH Health Systems. The City has risen to the occasion and our fatalities, confirmed cases, and inpatient COVID-19 patients have remained well below the major cities in Alabama. Each of you made sacrifices to protect your community and together, you have earned this opportunity to begin reclaiming your life.

Sometimes a long illness might give families time to confront the possibility of death. Other times, the death of a loved one comes suddenly, as in the case of an accident or suicide. You’ll want to approach the situation differently depending on the circumstances.
