Living and Dying

The question is not whether we will die,
but how we will live.
                                             –  Joan Borysenko

When someone gets a terminal diagnosis and is admitted to hospice, it is the task of the hospice team to help them live, really live, until they die. However, very often the timing is not ideal. The person is likely getting weaker and less alert, and doesn’t have the energy to deal with the tasks of living, much less working on unfinished relationship business. How much better it would be, to concentrate on living before we get to that point in our lives.

The Living and Dying programs focus on some of the psychosocial tasks of the dying person, and helps us address those before we get to the point of a terminal diagnosis.

We also offer classes for those who are grieving after the death of a loved one, as they re-orient to the new life ahead.
