When you lose a loved one, or are preparing to be alone, you will likely encounter practical, everyday problems. Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County (VHOCC) is offering a series of workshops, to offer support and advice to help with some of these new challenges. The series started in May and will address “Shopping & Cooking for One” on Wednesday, June 2. It then continues through July with a focus on household finances, consumer protection & fraud prevention, and self-care.

Scheduled every other Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., the series is free to the public with some meetings online and some in-person. In-person meetings are limited to a small group and require masks to respect current meeting guidelines. Whether interested in all or just one, you must register for each workshop by calling VHOCC at 360-452-1511 or by emailing [email protected]

Rosalinda Castiglioni will facilitate the “Shopping & Cooking for One” workshop in-person on Wednesday, June 2. Castiglioni was an educator and teaching psychologist having taught both in the US and abroad. Aside from doing outreach with the VHOCC’s Ambassador Committee, and facilitating a monthly drop-in grief support group, Rosalinda’s love for cooking and being on her own for years has drawn her to present the Cooking for One workshop. Food and cooking, she believes, does wonders for the soul and for friendships/relationships as well.
