As part of our commitment to community education, several of our staff members are available to speak to groups about serious illness, bereavement and the services provided by Hospicare & Palliative Care Services. We have given presentations to nursing home staff, schools, community groups, faith communities and human service agencies.
Dealing with loss
We offer a variety of special programs throughout the year on grief and loss. We also address this topic in presentations to the community. Workshops include our “Grief 101” series, “How Men Grieve” and “Coping with the Holidays”. For more information on these types of programs, contact Manager of Bereavement Services Donna George, LMSW, at 607-272-0212 or email her.
Hospice, Death and Dying or Advance Directives
Our staff members can also speak to a class or groups about end-of-life issues. To have someone to talk with your community group or class, contact Melissa Travis Dunham, Community Relations Manager at 607-272-0212 or email her. To have someone speak to a group of medical professionals or at a care facility, contact Leah Gugino at 607-272-0212 or email her.
