Educating Caregivers - Rituals and Vigils - Celebration of Life

Caregivers - Our lives would be no where without them. Every Facility has a family of caregivers who give a piece of themselves everyday of the week. Their work is far from easy. We forget, not only does the staff succumb to loss in their own lives, 

they are experiencing death and dying in their chosen profession as well. 


Where would we be without local facilities to take care of our loved ones. Unfortunately, everyone's time comes to an end. Staff Workers should be trained in guiding, supporting and feeling comfortable in traveling end of life. Talking about it is not easy and so often put aside as we are not sure what to do. Thinking about death has us thinking of our own mortality. I help facilitate this.


My name is Susan Capurso and I bring to you a Powerful Interactive Presentation devoted entirely to your staff that addresses the 

emotional, practical and spiritual needs of a person near the end of life. 

We review ritual and vigil practices to help insure every life is honored and treated with dignity, every step of the way.

How do they do this working so many hours and caring for their own families? We stress this importance and suggest mindful ways to bring in wholeness into their own lives. We offer local resources and preventatives as they are grieving right alongside the families as well. They've lost a friend and sometimes this goes unrecognized. We help.
