As Heather Massey explains this month’s topics: More and more people are using hospice at the end of life and doing so sooner, which can be helpful to them and their loved ones. Yet, most people who want to die at home end up dying in a facility. In this session, guided by Death Educator Heather Massey, MSW, we’ll hear from two local hospice experts who will join our Zoom class, and we will explore end-of-life documents, such as advance directives, hearing from other expert sources in the curated curriculum, through short readings, key recommendations, embedded videos, etc.

Goals of the class include learning about hospice and the difference between palliative care and hospice, being able to name at least four end-of-life (EOL) documents and committing to completing one of them.

If you’re a repeat attendee the  Zoom link is the same link we’ve been using since November and will use in April. If you’re a new attendee, please send a note to our office administrator by noon on the day of class at at . She will send you the link. 

Please come a few minutes early. Be prepared to participate by leaving your Zoom computer camera on and sharing in a few very short small group discussions. Also, please have a notebook at hand so you can write down your reflections.
