INSIGHT
Talking about serious illness is never easy. Talking about dying is even harder. Talking about living throughout serious illness and dying is mostly overlooked. Through our annual Community Conversation Series, we offer the opportunity to engage in conversations that inform and expand our expectations of these experiences and our choices that affect them. This year, we are thrilled to welcome, as our keynote speaker, a pioneer in end-of-life care, Dr. Ira Byock. A leading palliative care physician, author, and public advocate for improving care through the end of life, Dr. Byock is Founder and Chief Medical Officer for the Institute for Human Caring
of Providence St. Joseph Health, a 50 hospital health system serving communities across seven states. He advances efforts to measure, monitor and improve whole-person health care systemwide. He joins us through the generosity of a long-time donor, Robin Ballenger. Mark your calendar for this special event and find more information at clarehouse.org

FOCUS ON: Family

My husband, Ed, passed away peacefully on September 26th, 2016 after an 1 8 month battle with cancer. Our family was blessed to have spent our final days with him at Clarehouse. The dying process of your loved one can be frightening and gut wrenching. Our emotions were all over the board during the final days. Thankfully, the environment and the staff at Clarehouse was our rescue. The home offers a calm and tranquil setting with the feeling and accommodations of home.
 
During our stay, I met a mother whose adult daughter was passing. We passed each other during the early morning hours over a cup of coffee in the beautiful dining room. We did not speak, but our eyes told our story. The next day she took my hand and walked me over to a comfortable living area where we sat and had the most beautiful and memorable conversation. She helped me spiritually and I will never forg et that visit with her. The staff took excellent care of my husband and, in addition, they were a support to me and our family. It is my heartfelt thank you to Clarehouse and their staff.
 
Our memories of Ed's final days are memories of love and peace. And most  of all, Ed passed with dignity.

IMPACT
Committed to fostering the development of homes like Clarehouse across the country, we enthusiastically participate in t he Omega Home Network . In June, Clarehouse, along with The Journey Home and Porta Caeli House, jointly hosted the annual Omega Home Network Conference in Tulsa. From 30 Omega Homes and six developing projects, we welcomed 108 people sharing the same vision for end-of-life care in their communities.

Over three days, we learned about sustaining a community end-of-life home, shared inspiring stories and offered encouraging words on how to "Be the Change." It was exciting and reassuring to see these people come together, working toward improving the end-of-life experience for people and families in their communities. A few attendees have shared their thoughts below.

"This conference could not have come at a better time for us. Everyone was so friendly and willing to share their experiences, both the highs and the lows. There was plenty of nuts and bolts practical advice from the homes already operating, plus general support and encouragement for our mission and our journey. The conference itself was well-planned and well-paced, and the community and fellowship was amazing. I'm already looking forward to next year. Thank you!"

"I attended the 2018 Omega Home Network Conference for one day and it was a life-changing experience. The sessions were informative, productive, and facilitated by individuals who understand the importance of choice and support at life's end. I was profoundly touched by the tour of Clarehouse and inspired to dream that such a resource is possible in Springfield, Missouri."
