Making the most of your life doesn’t just happen. It takes planning. By talking with experts, people can make informed decisions and learn how to relay this important information to their families so they can plan for the best ending ever.
A great starting point is Courageous Conversations, a series of discussions about some of life’s most important choices hosted by Hospice of the Chesapeake at various locations throughout Anne Arundel and Prince George’s counties.
Sponsored by the John & Cathy Belcher Institute for Complex Illness Care, an education and advocacy collaborative advancing the understanding of advanced complex illness and end-of-life care, the discussions are part of the nonprofit’s efforts to encourage a national dialogue about end of life.
The next presentation will be “Safe Passages,” from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. June 13 at Pascal Senior Activities Center, 125 Dorsey Road, in Glen Burnie. What is the difference between hospice and palliative care? How do you recognize when that care is needed and where do you find services? Hospice of the Chesapeake Nurse Practitioner Amy Brumme will share her expertise and answer these and other questions about finding comfort with chronic illnesses and end-of-life care.
Registration is not required; however, seating is limited. For details, or to discuss educational opportunities for your community group, contact Community Education Manager Tammy Turner at 667-219-2891 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
