End-of-Life/Advance Care Planning
August 18, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm| Free
Attend a free, half-day symposium, “Your Life, Your Choices: End-of-Life/Advance Care Planning” at the Salvation Army on Route One in Rockland. For adults age 50-plus, the event introduces and demystifies the various medical, financial, legal and practical matters that older adults should consider as they plan for their later years.
Local experts will discuss:
• Advance directives
• Medical considerations
• Palliative vs. hospice care
• Financial and legal issues
• Funeral and burial options
The day’s agenda will also include a showing of “Consider the Conversation,” a documentary on advance care planning, and an introduction to Sussman House, a hospice-care center slated to open soon on the Pen Bay Healthcare campus in Rockport. A free continental breakfast and buffet lunch will be served
Registration is required. To sign up, please call Quarry Hill at 230-6116.
Cosponsored by Pen Bay Healthcare members: Kno-Wal-Lin Home Care & Hospice, Quarry Hill Retirement Community, Picker Family Resource Center, Pen Bay Medical Center Palliative Care Program and the Pen Bay Healthcare Foundation.
