The In-Between

January 29 | 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

As our lives evolve, the natural process of death and dying can be a place of fear or peace. The NYT Bestseller, The In-Between shares helpful encounters as we walk our loved ones home. Come join us at the home of Joan Wright for a guided discussion on the challenges and joys of caregiving and reflections on the experiences of hospice nurse, Dr. Hadley Vlahos, RN. Vlahos’ stories provide hope, comfort and understanding as we support family and friends in the last stage of life. You may listen to the podcast “A Conversation on Life, Death and ‘The In-Between'” on Charlotte Talks with Mike Collins  or read “The In-Between.”

Joan Wright will facilitate our conversation. As an MSW in clinical social work, Joan began her career learning to understand “dying well and dying within a community of loving people”.  Her HR, Executive Coaching and Organizational Development experience have afforded her many opportunities to facilitate conversations that get to the heart of the matter.  More recently in her life, thanks to Hospice, she feels blessed to have walked both her Mother and Father home.  Additionally, she is a trained Spiritual Director through Sustainable Faith and offers therapy dog support with her pups Brodie and Oliver to patients, family members/caregivers who are dealing with Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
