Hospice, Ethics at CEC
We probably all know at least one person who has been supported by a hospice program. Hospice is a program available for those facing the end stages of a terminal illness. This program offers medical, emotional and spiritual support to patients and their families, including grief counseling.
On Friday, March 21 from 10 a.m. to noon, Elizabeth Marcolongo, the Public Relations Coordinator at The Elizabeth Hospice, will speak on what makes hospice care so special to so many people. You will learn how hospice, over the years, has become a model of health care, the services offered, who is eligible and how one is referred. She will also explain who pays for hospice care and how family members are involved.
As people learn more about hospice, they are realizing that it may be the type of end-of-life care that they would like to have. The course will be given at the CECís office, 16776 Bernardo Center Drive, room 110A. Cost is $11 for members, $14 for nonmembers. Call 487-0464 for a reservation or more information.
