Hearts For Hospice and Sacred Heart Hospice are partnering to participate in National Health Care Decisions Day: a day designated to inspire, educate and empower the public and providers about the importance of advance care planning.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about Advance Directives, POLSTs (Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment), hospice benefits and treatment and the Life Passages Palliative Care Program. Bring your questions!
Sacred Heart Hospice and Life Passages will provide Medical Social Workers and a chaplain. Members of the Hearts for Hospice education committee will be in attendance to assist in providing information about end-of-life care planning. Advance Directive and POLST forms and other helpful literature will be available. Light snacks will be provided.
Sandra Clarke, founder of the No One Dies Alone Program, will make a guest appearance in the afternoon from 2:30-4:00. Sandra started No One Dies Alone at PeaceHealth Medical Center in Eugene fifteen years ago. The program provides volunteers to sit at the hospital bedside of actively dying patients who have no family or friends to be with them. The program has spread across the United States and into many other countries as well.
Please join us for this very special event.
