Hospice hosting three-week educational series at Motlow College

Posted on Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 6:17 pm

Anyone wanting to learn more about hospice and end-of-life choices is welcome to attend a three-day seminar on the subject at Motlow College beginning this Thursday night.

The course, “HOSPICE 101: Living Life with Hospice,” will be conducted on Thursday April 4, 11 and 18, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., with different speakers featured each night. In conjunction with Motlow State Community College, Hospice Compassus will be offering the three-week session this month.

The course is designed to “put an end to rumors and myths about exactly what hospice is, what is offered, who pays for hospice services, who can refer to hospice, how to sign up, or just how to get more information.”

Anyone who has ever had questions related to hospice or end-of-life care is welcome to attend the class. Hospice officials will introduce participants to their team and be available to answer questions. This class is intended for the community at large, health care providers or any individual facing end of life choices for their loved ones.

There is no charge for the class; CEU’s are available for $15. The classes will be held in the Marcum Technology Lecture Hall, Room 112, on the Moore County Campus.

For more information or to register for the classes, contact Julia Logan-Mayes, Volunteer Coordinator, via e-mail at <julia.logan-mayes@hospicecom.com> or call (931) 455-9118.
