The series provides a history and overview of hospice and the philosophy behind Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County; explores attitudes towards death and dying; delves into the grieving process and self-care, and offers hospice volunteer training for those interested in volunteering with the organization.

The sessions are open to the public and there is no charge.
