This program will explore the ways in which grief can be triggered during the holidays and will offer suggestions to reduce distress and boost spirits.
Presented by Marilyn Sponzo who provides spiritual care at McLean Health Center. A retired lawyer with a specialty in investment law, Marilyn is currently a student in the master's of divinity program at Chicago Theological Seminary, where her focus is on spiritual care for seniors. Marilyn lives with her husband and assorted pets in her North Granby home - aptly named "Chateau Bow Wow."

They're also a specially trained LGBT inclusive organization. For family members and caregivers, they offer support and education to help them better understand what's happening at any particular point in time and what to expect moving forward.
