Hospice Care with Dr. Heather Veeder, VITAS Healthcare

Registrations are closed for this event

If you were in control of your last months of life, what would you want? What would you want to accomplish? Who would you want to see? When life-prolonging interventions are no longer helpful or desired, hospice can offer support to meet your goals and spend your time focusing on what is important to you. Dr. Veeder will provide the basics of hospice care, dispel myths surrounding hospice, and answer questions you may have about hospice.

Date September 27, 2018

Hosted By Wellmed Charitable Foundation
