25 January, 9:30a.m. - noon
Join the UU Church of Silver Spring (UUCSS) for half-day workshop “Living and Dying Well,” which will cover the differences and areads of overlap between palliative care and hospice, as well as how to ensure good care for yourself or loved ones at the end of life.
Many people think of hospice care as something that’s only used during the last few weeks of life, and imagine that palliative care is synonymous with hospice care. They may also imagine that care planning such as a living will is something for those who expect to die soon. These misconceptions can greatly reduce our quality and even length of life. The information in this workshop will help families focus on what’s most important at the end of life.
Led by Rev. Ashley Burczak, affiliated community minister at UUCSS and chaplain with Jewish Social Services Agency Hospice of Montgomery County.
Light refreshments at 9:30 a.m., workshop will begin at 10 a.m.
The entrance to the UUCSS parking lot is on Oaklawn Drive.
