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.

Park wins Founders Cup, 54-year-old Davies ties for 2nd

Mar 19, 2018

PHOENIX — Weeks like this at the Founders Cup are why Inbee Park held off retiring and Laura Davies is still competing at age 54. Park celebrated her 19th LPGA Tour victory and first in a little over a year Sunday at Desert Ridge. Davies tied for second for her best tour finish since winning the last of her 20 titles in 2001. Park closed with a 5-under 67 in cool, breezy conditions, pulling away with four straight back-nine birdies. The 29-year-old South Korean star finished at 19-under 269, winning a day after revealing she was 50-50 about retiring before...

The last roars are for Rory McIlroy at Bay Hill

Mar 19, 2018

ORLANDO, Fla. — The connection Rory McIlroy had with Arnold Palmer was strong even before he delivered a Sunday charge that would have made the King proud. McIlroy first played the Arnold Palmer Invitational three years ago, and Palmer teared up at dinner when he asked McIlroy if there was anything he needed and received this reply: "Mr. Palmer, thanks to you, I have everything I could ever need in my life." McIlroy's last victory was at the Tour Championship on Sept. 25, 2016, the day Palmer died. Sunday was special for so many reasons. Tiger Woods brought Bay Hill...

Woods makes a brief run at Bay Hill until a big miss

Mar 19, 2018

ORLANDO, Fla. — Tiger Woods put on a Sunday charge at Bay Hill that looked all too familiar. One swing changed everything at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Coming off three birdies and two pars saves that brought him to within one shot of the lead, Woods hammered a tee shot so far left on the par-5 16th hole that it went over the fence, into a backyard and out-of-bounds. A birdie or better turned into a bogey, and ultimately it didn't matter when Rory McIlroy closed with five birdies in his last six holes to win. Woods made bogey from...

Final World Cup races called off, Rebensburg wins GS title

Mar 19, 2018

ARE, Sweden — Viktoria Rebensburg won her third season title in the giant slalom on Sunday without hitting the slopes at the World Cup finals. Strong winds forced the cancellation of the season-ending GS while the German skier led the standings by 92 points from world champion Tessa Worley of France, who won the title last season. With a win worth 100 points, Rebensburg was a strong pre-race favorite to wrap up the title. The last men's slalom was also canceled, but that didn't affect the final standings because Marcel Hirscher had already locked up the overall and discipline titles...

As F1 season begins, Schumacher is still fighting far away

Mar 19, 2018

As Formula One drivers prepare for the season-opening Australian Grand Prix next weekend, Michael Schumacher continues a very different fight far away. There remains huge respect for the seven-time F1 champion who, more than four years after a near-fatal brain injury in a skiing accident, is still being cared for at home in the quiet Swiss town of Gland on the shores of Lake Geneva. He's been treated there since September 2014. The thick forest surrounding his castle-like home provides sanctuary from fan and media intrusion with high surrounding walls. While his family fiercely protects his privacy, Schumacher's reputation still...
