Additional Services Offered by Southeast Hospice
Hospice staff members are available for educational presentations before church groups, service organizations or other organizations interested in learning more about the concept of hospice care.
Each Fall, Southeast Hospice sponsors C.O.O.L. (Children Overcoming Outstanding Loss)camp. This one-day retreat is designed to provide support for children ages 6-15 (children age 5 would be considered with recommendation from a teacher or counselor) who have experienced the death of a friend or family member. The day’s activities include storytelling, games, coping and recreational activities to promote education, support, and fun. Contact Lynn Boren for more information at 573.335.6208 or 1-888-397-0646.
Reclaiming Life After Loss
These monthly support groups provide education about the grieving process and support through interaction with others who have experienced the death of a loved one. This group meets the 2nd Tuesday and the 3rd Wednesday of every month..
A special part of the Hospice support system is the Hospice volunteer. Besides helping families by providing much-needed rest breaks for short periods of time and running errands, Hospice volunteers are good friends and good listeners to both patients and families. A series of special training sessions helps prepare Hospice volunteers for their duties. Call the Hospice Volunteer Coordinator to inquire about training opportunities.
