RICHLAND CENTER, Wis. – Agrace Hospice & Palliative Care has hired Richland Center resident Colleen Pulvermacher, MS, Certified Grief Support Specialist, to supplement Agrace’s community grief support programs in Richland and Sauk counties.
Pulvermacher will serve as a community grief specialist for Agrace in addition to continuing her current position as an agent/associate professor for University of Wisconsin-Extension in Viroqua. Agrace is Wisconsin’s largest nonprofit palliative care and hospice agency. It has provided end-of-life care and related services to people in southern Wisconsin communities for nearly 40 years.
As community grief specialist, Pulvermacher will lead Agrace’s local grief support offerings, including two upcoming events that will be held at the Richland Hills Apartment Complex Community Room:
Agrace’s Spouse/Partner Loss Support Group will meet weekly to offer support from Pulvermacher and another specially trained leader, as well as from other group members, who understand the emotional nature of this loss. Participants will be comforted and build a consistent, natural support system. Any adult may join the group, even if their spouse or partner who died was not an Agrace patient.
