End of Life Discussions – Departing Decisions:

Thinking about death can clarify our lives. Whether with your friends, family or patients – grab a cup of coffee, tea or a beer and get started. Many of these tools have been proven to decrease anxiety for families while providing a sense of peace in the midst of life’s toughest moments.

Pet Loss:

Portland’s 24-hour veterinary emergency hospital, DoveLewis, offers monthly Pet Loss Support.

“At DoveLewis we honor the human–animal bond and understand that in our society, each of us is expected to minimize our sorrow for our deceased pet. However, our feelings linger, long after the loss, because our pets shared our lives, our dreams, our homes and our affection. Because they touched our lives so deeply, they are deserving of our grief.”
