WASHBURN COUNTY — Aurora Community Counseling and Spooner Health would like to announce the next presentation in the GriefTalks series. Lucy Basler will speak on The Shock of Caregiver Grief after Death. Lucy Basler is an ordained minister who worked with Hospice for eleven years. She is the co-founder of the Burnett County Loss and Grief Support Network and has been a home funeral guide and educator since 2007. Her talk will address the “loss of purpose in life and all the familiar life-long daily routines, and the lifestyle enjoyed with your loved one before the illness as well as coming to terms with your needs and finding a new purpose in life.”
“The rewards of caregiving can be great but so are the challenges,” said Karen Kaufman, the Marriage and Family Therapist who spearheaded the GriefTalks series. “When the job of caregiving is over, people often face the difficult job of reconfiguring their lives in the midst of both grief and many responsibilities.”
The talk is scheduled for Thursday, April 25 at 2:00 pm in the lower level conference room at Spooner Health. There is no charge to attend this talk and no need to preregister.
Spooner Health is a 20-bed critical access hospital with a wide range of services from emergency and inpatient care to outpatient therapy, surgery and diagnostic imaging. Spooner Health is dedicated to providing high quality healthcare with excellent service.
