Having a Conversation: End of Life Issues

Having a Conversation: End of Life Issues (Ages 18+)

 

For most people, talking about end of life issues is placed in a folder titled "Avoid at All Costs." Open your folder a bit and join long time hospice volunteer and trainer Dave Kampfschulte in a stimulating class to explore your thoughts and beliefs about level of care, hospice, and funeral services. Then, learn techniques to initiate or support these types of conversations with friends, loved ones or patients. Talking about it now saves a lot of anguish later.

 

Location: Program Room 107 @ EGR Rec. Dept.

Instructor: Dave Kampfschulte
