You matter. Avow cares.

When illness, death, grief and loss touch your life, or the life of someone close to you, you need loving care and professional guidance to get through. Here in southwest Florida, Avow is that source of expert care.

We compassionately serve those who are:

  • Living with chronic, serious or terminal illness
  • Caring for a frail senior or someone who is seriously ill
  • Grieving any loss: a family member, friend, coworker, fellow student or pet

Avow was founded by area residents in 1983 as a not-for-profit hospice. Today, Avow is one of the area’s premier health care providers with programs of support for everyone in southwest Florida from newborns to our most senior citizens.

    Restorative Guided Meditation

    4:00 PM-5:15 PM
    1095 Whippoorwill Lane, Naples, FL, United States

    Clear the Mind; Refresh the Body; Lift the Spirit... at Restorative Guided Meditation

    2nd Tuesday of each month

    4:00 – 5:15 PM

    If you are coping with a serious illness, fatigued from caregiving or grieving a loss, we invite you to take some quiet time to “unplug” from your daily challenges and fears through restorative guided meditation.

    Guided meditation sessions combine music, breathing techniques and guided imagery to help you relax, de-stress and connect with your higher self.  The sessions are led by Louise Kenny, LCSW and held in the peaceful, serene setting of the Ispiri community center located on the east end of Lake Glenna on the Avow campus (1095 Whippoorwill Lane, Naples).

    Come… relax, restore and give your spirit a lift.

    And feel free to bring a friend!

    No fee to attend; no RSVP necessary.

    For more information call 239-261-4404 and ask to speak to Louise Kenny.
