SANTA BARBARA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / January 24, 2017 / Long-time supporter of community initiatives, Santa Barbara-based investor and leading force in the real estate industry, Kenny Slaught has wholeheartedly embraced Hospice of Santa Barbara's various programs aimed at helping those who experienced hardship in life to learn to experience joy and meaningfulness of life through empathy and self-care. In keeping with his life philosophy as a visionary philanthropist, he advocates for the Hospice of Santa Barbara's Anticipatory Grief Services program as he continues to educate the broader public of the importance of social support, particularly for people who have experienced the loss of their beloved ones, Slaught has recently promoted these programs on his blog at KennySlaught.com.
Hospice of Santa Barbara provides a wide range of compassionate care services to individuals facing terminal and chronic illness, as well as to their families. Many of the programs at the organization focus on the needs of children and youth as they struggle with the impending or recent passing of a close family member or friend. About 20 percent of children experience the death of a loved one before they turn 18, and one in 20 children must face the loss of one or both parents before they reach adulthood. Hospice of Santa Barbara endeavors to provide individuals in these situations with free support through a number of programs. This support helps individuals cope with grief to avoid or mitigate depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Kenny Slaught recognizes that both individuals facing death and their loved ones have to deal with anticipatory grief as the unavoidable draws near. He notes an unmatched level of professionalism and compassion that the dedicated staff of Hospice of Santa Barbara has demonstrated to help loved ones and people with terminal illnesses confront and deal with this grief in constructive ways so that they can enjoy their final days together with minimal stress and anxiety. Facing this grief directly can improve communication between loved ones and lay the foundation for saying what needs to be said and achieving a sense of closure, which can ease the grieving process after the loss occurs.
