FREE EVENT: What to Know About Hospice Care
Many people are familiar with the term "hospice care" but there is often confusion surrounding how it works. What does hospice care provide, and when is it time to ask for hospice care? Hospice focuses on the quality of life for residents and their families throughout their endof-life experience.
In partnership with Aegis Living Pleasant Hill, Continuum Care Hospice will present an informational conversation on the full spectrum of hospice care. This presentation will cover the psychological and financial benefits of Hospice for both the resident and their family, uncover the misconceptions of hospice, and demonstrate the healing powers of music.
Lorna Van Ackeren, Continuum Care Hospice
Lorna helps patients with terminal illnesses, and their families, navigate the end-of-life journey with dignity, comfort, and support with the assistance of Continuum Hospice. She is an appointed member to the CCC Advisory Council on Aging and serves on the board of directors for Meals on Wheels.
