Living with Grief: When Grief is Complicated

Join us on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at our Spaulding Facility (1480 Fowler St., Richland, WA 99352) as we present Hospice Foundation of America’s annual Living with Grief program. This year’s theme is “When Grief is Complicated” and it addresses the fact that while most individuals can cope with loss and subsequent grief in ways defined by their culture as appropriate, research shows that  between 10 and 20 percent of individuals who experience loss experience more disabling reactions, including Complicated Grief or other conditions triggered by the loss, such as PTSD, Major Depressive Disorder, Separation Anxiety Disorder, Adjustment Disorder or substance abuse. Complicated Grief reactions may also be a factor in physical illness. The program looks at how to identify disabling grief reactions and when referrals to specially trained clinicians or professionals may be indicated and necessary.

There is no cost to attend this program, unless you are purchasing CE credits. Registration begins at 10:00 am, the program runs from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm with a thirty-minute panel discussion following. Lunch will be served and is sponsored by Nuclear Care Partners.

For more information, please contact Wanda Kontur, Grief Care Specialist at (509) 783-7416 or by email at wandak@chaplaincyhealthcare.org.

Hospice Memorial Service

We at Chaplaincy Hospice Care invite you and other family members to a memorial service.  We will honor those loved ones who died in a service of recognition, music, and prayer.   Anyone remembering a loved one who died in Hospice is welcome.

Love and death touch every person in a totally unique way. We find comfort and strength in meeting and sharing with others who are making the same journey.

 We invite you to bring a picture or other small memento of your  loved one to the memorial service. There will be a time to bring those forward during the service, as well as place a lighted candle in honor   of your loved one. Pictures and mementos may be picked up following the service.

There will be a time during the service when you and others in your family will be given the opportunity to speak aloud the name of your loved one, if you wish to do so.
