Hospice isn’t what you think. Too often, when someone mentions hospice care, people feel afraid. But hospice isn’t about the end, it’s about the journey.  It’s about navigating new terrain together, and about everyone (the patient and the family and friends) being more comfortable during the ride. You don’t need to be alone—you can have a partner in care. At the end of this hour, you’ll know what you need to know for the moment when you or a loved one finds themselves needing care.  Bring your questions and invite a friend.  We will discuss: 

When is hospice appropriate? When should you start thinking about hospice?
What happens when someone goes on hospice?
What services can you expect? What are the benefits?
What is the difference between Palliative care and hospice?
What are the spiritual aspects of hospice?
Did you know you can graduate from hospice?

This workshop is led by Lena Asadov, Administrator, Angel Palliative Care and Hospice, and the Rev. Hailey McKeefry Delmas, Chaplain, Angel Palliative Care and Hospice. Click here for more information and registration.
