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.
