Living Until the End With Hospice
October 30, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pmFree
This presentation will cover the nuts and bolts of hospice. The talk will address who is appropriate for hospice (and who pays for hospice), when is the right time to go on hospice, what hospice involves, where hospice care is provided and why one might choose hospice over more aggressive care. We will also go beyond the basics of hospice and venture into some of the philosophical and societal aspects of our end-of-life journey. Moreover, the talk will discuss some of the practical things we can all do to be prepared for the end of life. There will also be plenty of time for questions.
