“I am so blessed to be given this opportunity to work for Hospice Giving Foundation. I moved to the Monterey Peninsula late in 2013 following the death of my husband. Once settled in, I found myself engulfed in grief over the loss of my best friend and love of my life; I knew I needed help. Through the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula (one of the Hospice Giving Foundation’s grantees) I received the support I needed. Ironically, during that same time I was offered a position here at Hospice Giving Foundation; a position that I am grateful and thankful for every day. Hospice care, has had a huge impact in my life not only for the grief support I received but for the direct care provided to both of my parents at the end of their lives.”
