Gaston Hospice and Grief Counseling Services

Speakers

For nearly thirty years, Gaston Hospice has touched the lives of thousands of people in Gaston County. As a service to our community, we provide a speaker's bureau to inform and educate the Gaston County community on end of life issues. Our qualified educators, both staff and volunteers, can provide an overview of our services, hold a question and answer session or offer a series of workshops. The most commonly requested topics are listed below, but any program can be custom designed to meet the special needs and time limits of your organization.

If your weekly/monthly lunch or dinner groups, circle meetings, mission groups, prayer breakfasts or Sunday School classes would be interested in having a hospice representative (staff or volunteer) speak, please contact Gaston Hospice at (704) 861-8405.
