Prince Rupert Hospice Society preparing for Hospice Palliative Care Week

The week of May 6th-May 12th is National Hospice Palliative Care week.

The week of May 6th-May 12th is National Hospice Palliative Care week.

This is a time to celebrate, recognize, and share achievements of Hospice Palliative Care throughout the nation. The Prince Rupert and District Hospice Society hopes to raise awareness in the community of their volunteer services and mission to provide care and support to those experiencing the dying and grieving processes.

We all face loss eventually. To support those in our community the society will present two workshops entitled, “Grief is Work”, with guest speaker Kevin Hegseth. The first workshop will take place Friday evening, from 7:30 p.m. 9:30 p.m., at the Senior’s Center, 21 Grenville Court. This is a drop in session for people who are coping with grief and loss and their support persons. There is no fee but donations to the society would be welcomed. The second workshop is Saturday, from 9:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Senior’s Center as well. Preregistration is required and there is a fee.

Kevin has a rich background as a Bereavement Coach, and is a Certified Neuro Linguistic Programmer and Educator. He specializes in helping individuals and groups to explore, understand, and experience the grieving process. These workshops will help you learn tools to help yourself and others. The Saturday workshop is geared towards support people, friends, coworkers, family, health care providers, teachers,  and Hospice Volunteers. Kevin will help you develop a tool box filled with different techniques that you can draw from when helping others who are grieving.

To register please contact Zoe, at 250-627-8220. For further information contact Zoe or leave a message at the Hospice office at 250-622-6204
