Grieving Before Death

When a loved one faces an illness like dementia or one that eventually leads to “There’s nothing more we can do”, emotions and coping for everyone involved can be challenging. Please join us at Trinity for an honest conversation about grief and dying. We will be led by two professionals from Regional Hospice, Sam Dexter and Mary Condron, who have many years of experience supporting patients and their families at the end of life.


Sunday, May 5th
10:45am-12:00pm
