PORT ANGELES — Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County will host a Living Alone Now workshop from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. March 5.
The workshop at the volunteer hospice headquarters at 829 E. Eighth St. in Port Angeles is free and open to the public. Space is limited; pre-registration is required by calling 360-452-1511 or emailing to [email protected].
The workshop is designed to assist those experiencing a recent transition due to loss of a life partner and facing unfamiliar issues of home and auto maintenance.
Michael Bucierka will provide information on what systems in a person’s home need regular maintenance to avoid an emergency, and what to do in case of an emergency.
He will provide suggestions on what maintenance can be performed by the homeowner and when professional assistance is recommended.
Bucierka brings to the workshop extensive experience as a former licensed general contractor, home inspector and residential maintenance professional, organizers said.
The Living Alone Now series continues through the rest of March. Other upcoming workshops are Shopping & Cooking for One on March 12, Fraud Prevention & Consumer Protection on March 19 and Self-Care on March 26.
