History of Hospice Care

November 25th, 2019|

Hospice care has been practiced for over 1,500 years.

When Feeling Okay Feels Wrong

October 28th, 2019|

Losing a loved one is devastating, and unfortunately, grief offers us no timeline. At first, it might feel as though everything has completely stopped; thoughts of “growth” and “healing” from this significant loss seem inconceivable. But, as time passes, there are fewer tears and you begin to experience the joys of life again, but grief is a funny thing. For some individuals, starting to feel okay again, while still grieving the loss of a loved one, can feel wrong. Learn more in this week's Changing Lives Podcast.
