Volunteer Hospice to host final workshop of Sequim series for survivors on Sept. 22

The last session will focus on self-care with Debby Smith and Rev. Maggie Bourne-Raiswell.

SEQUIM — Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County will host the last of its Sequim series of Survivors Workshops: Practical Advice to Living Alone on Sept. 22.

The workshop will be from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave. in Sequim.

It is free, but space is limited. Registration is necessary by calling Volunteer Hospice at 360-452-1511.

The last session will focus on self-care with Debby Smith and Rev. Maggie Bourne-Raiswell.

They will talk about how to bring the attention to the person so often forgotten when in the midst of grief: the griever themselves.

The previous three sessions addressed specific aspects of living alone: Home and car maintenance, cooking for one and financial management.

Each workshop is designed to assist those who have lost loved ones and now live alone to deal with the everyday problems that are likely to arise.

The entire series will repeat in Port Angeles in the next few months for those who missed it in Sequim.

Visitors can attend any or all, as best fits their needs.

Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County, a nonprofit organization almost entirely staffed by volunteers, is continuously looking for people to deliver equipment, offer respite to caregivers, answer phones in the office and much more.

To volunteer, call 360-452-1511.
