Workshops & Classes for Families and Professionals

Workshops involve a combination of educational content, rich story-telling, case scenarios, lecture, and active audience engagement. Kay’s extensive background in geriatrics, hospice, palliative care and mental health allows her to address the diverse and complex experiences of her clients and audiences in a very relatable way.

Known for bringing passion, integrity, humor, and a unique authenticity to her work, Kay can make often uncomfortable topics safe to explore for family and professional caregivers alike.

All workshops are facilitated by Kay Adams, licensed clinical social worker.
