  • COVID-19’s theft of our assumptive world
  • A child’s perspective on the pandemic
  • The overlay of grief and COVID-19 restrictions
  • Self-care
  • Ways to support children and their adult caregivers

To better support our clients and community, Faith and Hope Hospice in Pasadena CA is developing several online support groups. We are currently conducting a survey to understand the needs of the people we serve. This will help us provide relevant services, including topics of interest, duration of group, days & times to meet and a few other details. This is another way we are making Faith & Hope Hospice the best hospice Los Angeles has to offer.
