Through open conversation in a natural, comfortable setting, we can bring conversations about death out of the silence and increase awareness of death as a part of life.

Death Cafe returns September 13, 2021! See our events page for more information.
This program brings together trained Hospice volunteers with individuals who have received a diagnosis of a life-limiting illness.
Quality of life is key to our service, and Hospice volunteers provide
practical, emotional, and spiritual support to both clients and their families. or they can take time to step away for rest or other responsibilities.
Navigating, Connecting, Accessing, Resourcing and Engaging
Specially trained Hospice volunteers, or Navigators, conduct regular visits with clients in their home.
Navigators specialize in helping older adults (and other members of the community with chronic illnesses) find and access resources in the community and make a difference in how clients live their experience with chronic illnesses.
Grief companions are Hospice trained volunteers who offer one-on-one grief support.
This program is based on Dr. Alan Wolfelt’s model of companioning the bereaved. In this model, companions are a compassionate, listening presence when you need a safe place to tell the story of your loss and share tears... or laughter.
This drop-in group meets year-round, 52 weeks, one morning a week.
Spend your time walking indoors and outdoors (depending on the season) and connecting with others through shared experiences.
Due to COVID restrictions, this program is currently unavailable.
Book time with Grief & Bereavement Mentors, Bill Harder or Jessica Johnson, for conversation about your grief journey.
Assessment and referral are provided as desired.
There is no fee for this support.
