About Lorrie Grisnik Anderson

I'm a death educator who believes that even a little correct knowledge of death and dying can help people come to terms with the inevitable. Death education, or thanatology, is the study of death and dying, focusing on the human and emotional aspects. It can help people work toward physical, mental, and social well-being, and can prompt reflection on the meaning of life. Death education can also help people develop critical thinking skills and share experiences. I worked as a manager of hospice volunteers for 13 years. I trained volunteers in the best practices for visiting terminally ill patients and their families. I also created an 11th-hour program and introduced communication boards for staff, volunteers, and families to use with non-verbal patients. Additionally, I was a mentor for other hospice volunteer managers across Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma, and organized 3-day fly-ins to provide additional training for hospice managers of volunteers.
