Wellness Place Closing

It is with heavy heart that we must tell you that Wellness Place will be closing at the end of September 2014.  The organization can no longer be sustained financially.  All programs, classes, groups, and services will continue as scheduled through September 30, and the Counseling staff is available for appointments as needed.  Lists of resources, including support groups, individual counselors, and stress and pain management providers in our surrounding communities, are available at our location.  You may also send an email request for the resource lists to renie.stoller-zak@wellnessplace.org and they will be sent to you electronically.

 

Many wonderful relationships have been created and nurtured here. We invite you to join us at an Open House on Saturday, September 20, from 1:30 - 4:30 pm, to celebrate and honor the legacy of Wellness Place.  At 3:30 pm, Rev. Dr. Scot Giles will offer a short interfaith ceremony of blessing.

 

Through the years thousands of you have received compassion and support from Wellness Place and the Staff will continue to assist you in finding the resources you need.

STORIES OF STRENGTH

 

IT IS MY HOPE THAT NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO HANDLE THE DIAGNOSIS OF CANCER ALONE 

It is my hope that no one should have to handle the diagnosis of cancer alone. Because I've been a hospice nurse for more than 11 years, I'm used to being the one who gives support. It's what I do. I have a doctorate in nursing, and I have taught nursing at several universities across Chicago. I think some people might think that if an illness such as cancer struck my family, I would have all the tools necessary to handle it alone. Those people would be wrong. In 2009, my husband received cancer diagnoses for two separate cancers.
