The coronavirus pandemic has imposed a multitude of losses upon our lives: the loss of freedoms and peace of mind, family and social connections — and for some, even the loss of a loved one. Our lives are forever changed, and we can’t imagine how to go on. These feelings of loss can be magnified during the social isolation caused by the pandemic. Hospice of the Valley is offering a Zoom online presentation to help you cultivate strength and cope with challenges you never imagined. It is accessible from the comfort of your home or office and designed to support any adult in our community who is struggling with losses. You don’t need to face this difficult time alone.
