“Last year more than 1.4 million patients nationally were served by hospice. We wanted to do something special this year and National Hospice/Palliative Care Month seemed like the perfect time to do it,” said Rilo Weisner, Volunteer Hospice Coordinator for KGH. “Each year KGH Volunteer Hospice volunteers help about a dozen patients in SE Alaska.”
Death and grieving expert Kathy Karmid, MF, LPC, from Oklahoma City will present “Living in Search, Dying to Know,” a program that discusses the impact of death and dying on the individual and how it is handled in different cultures around the world.
The day-long event includes a workshop and luncheon at Cape Fox Lodge. Cost of the event is $20, which includes 6 CEUs for caregivers, the workshop, and luncheon.
