Hospice Care

Glendon is a retired clinical social worker Smith College School For Social Work) whose private practice included intensive work with children, families, couples and trauma victims. He is also a trained mediator and parent coordinator.

Since his retirement and re-location from Massachusetts to Palm Springs, he has volunteered with Family Hospice Care (being with dying patients and their loved ones), the Riverside County Fire Department and the Palm Springs Air Museum (docent).

His professional training, clinical experience, the many deaths he has experiences in his personal life, and his training with the International End of Life Doula Association have prepared him to provide the integrity and empathy necessary to bring dignity, meaning and spiritual comfort to the end of life experience.
