Silverado Hospice Provides FREE Health-Related Seminars
By Carmella Lucero, Bereavement and Community Outreach Coordinator
In an effort to help the South Houston community gain comfort with end-of-life issues, we've embarked on a project to bring free health care information to people in our service area.
We're offering ten presentation topics to churches, schools, civic organizations and businesses, hosted by our staff and volunteers. The goal of these presentations is it to promote understanding and improve competence in dealing with some of life's most delicate issues.
- Dealing with Role Reversal
- Initiating End of Life Discussions with Loved Ones
- Finding the Blessings in Care Giving
- How to provide Comfort Care
- Helping Church Members with Sick and Dying Family Members
- What to do when a loved ones forgetfulness becomes serious
- Redefining Hope-Especially when the Situation seems Hopeless
- Understanding and Managing Caregiver Burnout
- Why does this have to hurt so much- Living through Grief
- The Facts about Nutrition and Tube Feeding in the Elderly
Organizations can choose just one topic or a series of topics.
In addition, community grief support is being offered as many families are not afforded the luxury of working closely with a hospice program, which provides ongoing bereavement support and are often left feeling lonely and depressed with no one to turn to for help.
