The series will be from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. each Thursday at Hospice House, located behind the hospice office at 540 E. Eighth St.
The program is free and open to the public. Registration is required and can be taken up to the day before the series begins.
The series is for both new volunteers and the general public, said Marilyn Nelsen, volunteer services manager.
“It’s a requirement for new volunteers,” she said.
“It is also a community service for people who have an interest in hospice and want to know more about it.”
Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County provides free services to terminally ill patients and their families.
The series topics are:
■ Sept. 20 — Introduction to hospice.
■ Sept. 27 — Attitudes toward death and dying, with a documentary, “Consider the Conversation,” to be shown.
■ Oct. 4 — Families dealing with terminal illness.
■ Oct. 11 — The grieving process.
■ Oct. 18 — Legal issues; the group will visit a local mortuary, and an attorney will discuss legal issues.
■ Oct. 25 — Stress management, a session for caregivers.
