This Sunday on Radio 4 the Ages, Heather and Matt speak with Larry Dawalt (Senior Director of Spiritual & Grief Care Services – Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region) about grief and loss. We learn how people can experience grief and loss differently, especially the losses that many senior adults face as they age. We talk about what people close to those grieving can do to help and how to listen and inspire hope. We also hear from David, and his son David, via phone to talk about his visit to Albuquerque, NM to watch his son be promoted from Captain to Major in the United States Air Force. To learn more about grief and loss, experiences we will all face at some point in our lives, tune in to Radio 4 the Ages.

This Sunday on Radio 4 the Ages, we spoke with two wonderful guests Mandy Eppley and Lyndall Hare, both from The Respite – A Centre for Grief & Hope. Mandy tells about the beginnings of The Respite as well as what they do. From their website:
In an atmosphere of dignity and respect for the grief process, The Respite helps people, regardless of socio-economic status, who have suffered a significant loss in any form to reclaim a healthy and productive life. We provide a safe haven, a supportive community, and take a holistic approach that offers a variety of healing modalities (mind, soul and body) to empower individuals and families. Our vision is to shift how grief is viewed in the world – moving from shame and isolation to unveiling (or mining) grief’s transformative gifts. We welcome grief and provide hope for tomorrow.
We were so grateful to have them on our show this week to talk about all the great things they are doing. Tune in, call in, and get involved!
