What We Do
Our goal at GLADYS is to offer individualized trauma-informed services while also working collaboratively to build an aging positive and end-of-life informed community. We aim to empower our clients by validating their experiences and offer support, resources, and tools that further increase learning, understanding, and awareness about aging in-place, death & dying processes, advanced care planning, and grief and loss.
And we do all this through connection, honesty, and candor,
plus a dash of humor. Because acknowledging, humanizing and normalizing these experiences are critical steps required in attending and adapting to the needs and changes of an individual.
