November is National Hospice & Palliative Care Month

Share

In recognition of National Hospice & Palliative Care Month in November, Talbot Hospice will offer two Lunch & Learns at the Easton and St. Michaels locations of the Talbot County Free Library. Presentations will be held Monday, November 13, 12 p.m. at the St. Michaels branch and Wednesday, November 15, 12 p.m. in Easton.

The educational presentations – Hospice 101: Debunking the Myths – will dovetail with this year’s NHPC Month theme “It’s about how you live.” According to Talbot Hospice Executive Director Vivian Dodge, hospice is about how you want to live the last chapter of life. “Our goal is to educate the community that hospice is not just for the last days or week of life,” said Dodge. “Hospice is a system of care and support for both the patient and the family. It’s not a place or our building on Cynwood Drive. In fact, most of the patients we serve are in their homes. I hope individuals will put aside their preconceived ideas about hospice and their reluctance to talk about death and dying and come hear about the uplifting and important work we do.”
