It’s one of those things that people don’t think much about until you need it, but to those who are actively caring for a terminally ill loved one hospice services make all the difference.
In an effort to educate both potential clients, healthcare workers and volunteers about the nature of end-of-life care, Hospice Compassus and Motlow College are partnering to offer a free three-week Hospice 101 course beginning in mid-March.
Potential clients will have a chance to meet staff members and ask questions about the specific services offered through hospice care. Healthcare workers can learn more about when to recommend these services and volunteers can discover what they can do to help families and caregivers who are in the process of providing end-of-life care for a loved one.
The classes take place on three consecutive Thursdays – March 15, 22, and 29 – from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Marcum Technology Lecture Hall in Room 112.
