EI Coffee Chat: Hospice Care
November 3, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Although end-of-life care may be difficult to discuss, taking the time to think about what you want at the end of life can greatly reduce stress and prevent uncomfortable situations later in life. Learning about the end-of-life services that are available will help you to make educated decisions about what you want, or don’t want, as part of your end-of-life care.
Hospice care is one such service that often becomes available towards the end of life. However, hospice is still widely misunderstood and in many cases feared. Many people who would benefit from hospice never utilize these services, often due to not knowing all that hospice can provide.
Margie Strosser, a hospice social worker from Holisticare Hospice, will join us to provide an overview of hospice care and to discuss the things we should be thinking about when considering what we want at the end of our lives.
Coffee and other beverages will be provided! Feel free to bring your own lunch or snack.
