Early education is vital and knowledge is power when it comes to maintaining or improving quality of life, especially for someone who is at the end of life. Having a conversation about your loved one’s wishes can be difficult. Hospice, the medical care toward that goal, is available to the patient and family when life prognosis is six months or less.
Join Kurt Kazanowski, hospice consultant, speaker, author and coach as he discusses the importance of having this conversation early as your loved one’s illness becomes terminal.
An inspiring presentation that will give you a completely new and different perspective on how hospice is all about living with quality and dignity. Kazanowski uses personal experiences as his parents aged and passed away to his work in health care as a nurse and hospice professional to help you better understand how you can give the gift of hospice.
- Discover how to be able to give the gift of hospice
- Describe Advanced Directives and the POLST and how to implement them
- Explore the 10 Myths of Hospice and what the truths really are
- Identify how hospice works and the benefits provided
This event is free of charge; dinner will be provided.
