Please join us as Samaritan Hospice presents important information about hospice care. Samaritan defines hospice as “a set of services, rather than a place, that helps patients and families address the many issues that arise at the end of life. When an illness no longer responds to curative treatments or a patient chooses to stop further aggressive treatments, hospice offers a full range of care aimed at comfort rather than cure. At the center of hospice care is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free and with dignity, and that our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so.”
Samaritan’s hour-long presentation will begin with an overview of hospice care and will continue into programs & services that the public may not realize exist under their Medicare benefits and how to access them in a timely fashion. Towards the end, the presentation will conclude with information about volunteer opportunities.
This program, “Hospice 101 & The Medicare Hospice Benefit: A Well-kept Secret“, will be held on Tuesday, August 25th at 2:00 pm. You can register by calling the library at 856-983-1444 or by visiting our online calendar.
