Workshops & Trainings

Hospice staff and volunteers offer diverse educational presentations and workships to community members and health professionals.

Join the conversation... Hospice SLO County invites community members to attend a Death Cafe from 6 – 7:30 pm on the fourth Monday of every month at Hospice SLO County.

Death Cafes are offered all over the world, providing individuals the opportunity to talk openly about death and dying. These casual gatherings aim to "increase awareness of death while helping people make the most of their (finite) lives."

For the past 40 years, Hospice SLO County has depended on the generosity and time of volunteers who offer their voices for kindness, listen with ears of compassion, and open their hearts with love.

Our comprehensive 30-hour In-Home Volunteer Training will begin on Thursday, February 14, 2019. Classes will be held on Thursdays, 1:30 – 6 pm at Hospice SLO County in San Luis Obispo.

A Year To Live is an opportunity to examine life and death, with an emphasis on life; specifically, living a well-lived life. We will explore details of life as sitting in silence, skilled listening, connecting with yourself and others, practicing gratitude, and practicing forgiveness. We will also have deep conversations about the feelings that come up around the subjects of dying and death.
