On November 21, 2023, I will be facilitating this free workshop for PalCare, a non-medical hospice palliative care education provider.

In this workshop you will learn: 

The three things that every supporter needs to give the bereaved,

How to not say the wrong thing,

How to recover when mistakes are made, 

and much more. 


Participants will need a way to take notes (paper, pen, or word doc) during the workshop.

As a participant, you will be expected to: 

To have your camera on for the duration of the workshop 

Have the courage to ask questions when you have them

Unexpected Loss and Unprepared Grief: Finding Hope in Hospice with Aly Bird
