Client Helps Others Deal with Loss
SBDC client, Patricia Acker, is expanding her business to include outreach through speaking engagements. Pat, an author and artist, is a retired hospice social worker with a Masters in counseling who educates people on issues relating to grief, loss and coping with the process of losing a loved one. She recently appeared on DATV’s Gospel for Today program which can be seen on her website.
Her book The Dying Teach Us How to Live is now in its second printing and available as an ebook as well. The book is a touching collection of short stories that Pat gathered in her 17 years with hospice and beautifully illustrated with her own paintings. These stories help guide and comfort patients and caregivers through their journey.
