The Hospice Foundation of America's 20th annual Living with Grief Program, titled "Improving Care for Veterans Facing Illness and Death," will be presented from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. May 16 at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 900 Brilowski Road.
The pre-recorded program will assist end-of-life care provider organizations and health and human service professionals in enhancing their sensitivities and understanding of veterans, and provide professionals with new interventions to better serve dying veterans and their families. The program also looks at military benefits and intersections with VA systems and will explore the traditions and sensitivities of grieving families and resources that can assist them.
The event, sponsored by Ministry Home Care-Hospice Services, is free and no advance registration is required. Companion books, titled "Improving Care for Veterans," may be purchased at the event for $16. For more information, call Ministry Home Care at 800-398-1297.
