Main Event Scheduled

October 24th at 7:00pm

A representative from Parmenter Home Care & Hospice will be joining us and discussing how Advance Care Planning is a process. It takes time. It requires an understanding of care options, intimate conversation, quiet reflection and thoughtful choices in seeking to improve the honoring of wishes for care at end-of-life through outreach and engagement. This written plan is known as Advance Care Directives - and is shared with loved ones and healthcare providers, choices for care are more likely to be honored, stress is reduced and, ultimately, health care is delivered more effectively.

Last Chance!

Voice your opinions about our strengths, what we do well, and what you would like to see us do better. There is one last chance to join a New Beginnings retreat-schedule-option this Friday and Saturday, October 10-11th. Contact Pete Curran with questions or sign-up in Fellowship Hall or online.
