An Educational Resource
Clarifying the role of hospice to our community is one of Crater Community Hospice’s highest priorities. Our major function in community education is to open the discussion on the difficult issues that go hand-in-hand with end-of-life care, explain the availability of hospice, and present death as a normal part of the life cycle. Our overall goal is to make it known that the last stage of life can be lived with comfort and dignity.
The CCH Speaker’s Bureau offers presentations on many end-of-life issues including:
- Understanding Hospice
- The Importance of Advance Care Planning
- Being Mortal: The Critically Acclaimed Documentary
Our speakers are able to tailor the topic to meet the needs of your church group, senior citizen’s organization, college group, club or organization. There is no fee for the CCH Speaker’s Bureau and speakers are available to meet your group’s scheduling needs.
Crater Community Hospice is also available to participate in conferences and seminars discussing the role of Hospice in relationship to the over-all medical system as well as addressing ethical issues related to terminal care.
