AHA will host a panel discussion on compassionate care at the end of life to ensure the best quality of life for a spouse, partner or loved one. The panel will discuss: who is a candidate for hospice, how to plan in advance, how to find high quality care, and the role of the caregiver with hospice care providers.
Principal presenter will be Colleen Duewel, the founder of Lionheart Eldercare and Consulting. Colleen has extensive experience in skilled nursing facilities, hospitals and hospice care. Carrie Cyre, owner of Sparrow Nursing Solutions will be our nurse panelist and will assist in taking questions from the audience.
The event will take place in the meeting room at Portner’s Landing condominium located at 621 N. St. Asaph Street, across from Trader Joe’s. There are six steps leading from the lobby to the first floor where the meeting room is. If you are unable to walk the steps, there is a small lift available. A key is needed to use the lift, so please let us know in advance if you will need assistance.
Street parking and the garage are usually available at that time.
