Speaker Series

Volunteer Hospice offers a Speaker Series. Every other month, education and awareness events will feature expert speakers to shift the narrative about death and dying away from death-phobic culture. Open to all in the local community and beyond via online meetings. Series will be recorded and made available here.  If you missed an event, the recording will be available for 30 days after the event. See below.

Death Café

Every month, on the fourth Wednesday at 4 PM, Volunteer Hospice hosts a death café, “Tea To Die For”, in collaboration with Port Angeles Senior Center.  These informal and unstructured discussions around coffee, tea, and cake will be led by a facilitator. They provide attendees the opportunity to discuss any topic around death and dying.

Starts Wednesday April 27, 4-5 PM, Port Angeles Senior Center,  328 E. 7th St, Port Angeles and every fourth Wednesday of the month after that.

Register at 360-452-1511 no later than noon on the day of the Death Café.

Plans are underway to host another “Tea To Die For” in Sequim.

Spiritual Care Provider

Volunteer Hospice will make available to the community a diverse, inclusive interfaith and interdisciplinary directory of practitioners. These practitioners will include bereavement counselors, ancestral healing practitioners, ritualists, end of life practitioners, death doulas, faith leaders, spiritual care providers, and others. Regardless of the specific needs of the patient and their families, our community will have access to inter-faith and non-faith-based services.

This directory is under construction, check back often to see its progress!
