Here's just a small sampling of what we have accomplished so far. . .
2017 Hospice Harvest BBQ
Giving back to our community, Dr. Mark Withrow MD provided fresh salmon.
Before I die. . .Crabfest 2017
Hospice wanted to bring death out into the open for our community. Thanks to Lani (Harbor Master) we were able to place our Before I die wall on display during the 2017 Annual Crabfest To bring space to Kodiak where there are no barriers between life and death, only living fully.
"The original wall was created on an abandoned house in New Orleans by artist Candy Chang after she lost someone she loved. Since then over 2,000 Before I Die walls have been created in over 70 countries around the world. Revealing the community’s longings, anxieties, joys, and struggles, it is time to explore death and grief."
Open Death Conversation
Thanks to Monks Rock Hospice was able to successfully host an uplifting interactive adventure that transforms this seemingly difficult conversation into one of deep engagement, insight and empowerment. How we want to die is the most important and costly conversation America isn't having. What do you want in both life and during it's closure?
