January 14 – Coping with Losses

We know that losing a loved one can be challenging and at times feel impossible to manage. Thelma will present common grief myths and realities alongside coping techniques that can be shared with families or utilized in your own life to manage grief and loss.

February 11 – Our Presence is Our Greatest Offering

Kelly Grosklags, LCSW, BCD, FAAGC, is an oncology psychotherapist, author, and national speaker who has spent 25+ years of her life working with patients receiving end-of-life care. She will share stories from patients about what matters most and ways to help patients feel heard. Learn about “perfect provider syndrome” and how to find balance in your daily work and life. 

March 11 – Death Café

The practice of gathering in a “Death Café” was begun to provide a place for people to openly and respectfully exchange wonderings, worries, beliefs and support around the topic of dying and death. Wellness House participants love this program; our colleagues are warmly welcomed to participate in a Death Cafe of our own!
