Kenny Slaught Notes Variety Of Services Provided By Hospice Of Santa Barbara
Kenny Slaught notes that Hospice of Santa Barbara offers a variety of services not just for individuals facing terminal and chronic illness, but also to their families. Many of the programs at the organization serve the needs of children struggling with the impending or recent passing of a loved one. Nearly 20 percent of children experience the loss of a family member before they turn 18, with one in 20 children suffering the loss of one or both parents before they reach adulthood. Hospice of Santa Barbara provides individuals in these scenarios with free support by offering numerous programs to help them cope with grief to avoid or minimize depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
