Ken Slaught is Avid Supporter of Anticipatory Grief Services Outreach Program

Many of the programs focus on the needs of children as they struggle with the impending or recent passing of a close family member or friend.

Santa Barbara, CA - March 14, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

California investor Ken Slaught not only dedicates his time to the growth and development of the Santa Barbara community, but also serves various humanitarian causes throughout the county including at the Hospice of Santa Barbara, where he promotes the good work of those who help people at the end of life. As he continues to educate the broader public of the importance of social support, particularly for people who have experienced the loss of their beloved ones, Slaught has recently promoted Hospice of Santa Barbara’s Anticipatory Grief Services program on his blog at KennySlaught.com.

Hospice of Santa Barbara provides a wide range of compassionate care services to individuals facing terminal and chronic illness, as well as to their families. Many of the programs at the organization focus on the needs of children and youth as they struggle with the impending or recent passing of a close family member or friend. About 20 percent of children experience the death of a loved one before they turn 18, and one in 20 children must face the loss of one or both parents before they reach adulthood. Hospice of Santa Barbara endeavors to provide individuals in these situations with free support through a number of programs. This support helps individuals cope with grief to avoid or mitigate depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Ken Slaught recognizes that both individuals facing death and their loved ones have to deal with anticipatory grief as the unavoidable draws near. He notes an unmatched level of professionalism and compassion that the dedicated staff of Hospice of Santa Barbara has demonstrated to help loved ones and people with terminal illnesses confront and deal with this grief in constructive ways so that they can enjoy their final days together with minimal stress and anxiety. Facing this grief directly can improve communication between loved ones and lay the foundation for saying what needs to be said and achieving a sense of closure, which can ease the grieving process after the loss occurs.

Founder of Investec Real Estate Companies, Ken Slaught has been in the industry for more than four decades. A dedicated investment strategist, he manages more than 3 million square feet of property throughout California. With total transactions valued above $1.2 billion, Investec has grown to become one of Santa Barbara’s leading real estate firms. An avid philanthropist, Mr. Slaught is involved with many non-profit and community organizations, including Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation and the Music Academy of the West. Contributing to the benefit of youth in the area, he dedicates considerable time to these and other worthy causes.

Jan 24, 2019

SAN DIEGO — Rory McIlroy had a week to remember his first trip to San Diego. He carried Northern Ireland's flag during the opening ceremony of the Junior World Championship and later had a picture taken at Torrey Pines with a certain Mr. Woods. That was 20 years ago. And it was Earl Woods, the father of Tiger. "Tiger was probably off winning majors," McIlroy said with a laugh on the eve of his debut in the Farmers Insurance Open. McIlroy saw enough of the South Course — 10 holes on Monday, the pro-am Wednesday — to appreciate why this...

Jan 24, 2019

Lindsey Vonn isn't quite done yet. The most successful female skier in World Cup history said Wednesday that she remains "hopeful" she can fix her ailing knees and race again. She just doesn't know when — or if— that will be possible. "I'm taking things day by day and we will see what happens," Vonn wrote on Instagram . "I know that I might not get the ending to my career that I had hoped for, but if there is a chance, I will take it." The announcement came three days after Vonn hinted at immediate retirement after failing to...

Woods diving again, another sign he's back at full strength

Jan 24, 2019

SAN DIEGO — Tiger Woods is feeling stronger than ever with his fused back, and the evidence goes beyond the speed of his swing or how hard he can go after a shot out of deep rough. Woods says he is diving again. He says he was doing free dives and spearfishing during his time off, and even went diving with a tank, which he had not done in years. "I just can't afford to have that weight on my back and compressing my disk, and my disk was already screwed up," said Woods, who had fusion surgery in April...

SAN DIEGO — Rarely in sports has such a big moment had such a short shelf life. Even one involving Tiger Woods. With respect to Brooks Koepka and his two majors, or Francesco Molinari with his claret jug and 5-0 mark in the Ryder Cup, no moment last year captivated golf as much as Woods finishing off his improbable comeback by winning the final PGA Tour event of the season at the Tour Championship. And then it was time to move on. Twelve hours later, Woods and the American team arrived in Paris for the Ryder Cup. That week was...
