Agrace will host a free educational discussion in May at its Madison campus, 5395 E. Cheryl Parkway, Madison. “Making the Hospice or Palliative Care Choice” will be held Tuesday, May 19, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Facing a serious or terminal illness can be a very stressful challenge, and many people are not familiar with the help that’s available in their community. Agrace can greatly improve the quality of life for the person who is ill as well as their caregivers with a ‘whole person’ approach to care and support. Those who attend this discussion will learn:
- What makes someone eligible for hospice or palliative care, and how these two services differ
- What to expect when you choose comprehensive end-of-life care
- How Agrace helps people who have a serious illness, but do not need hospice care
- Where care is provided, and who pays for Agrace’s services.
This discussion is free and open to the public. Following the discussion, those who attend are invited to join a guided tour of the Don & Marilyn Anderson Inpatient Unit at Agrace. Advance registration is required; please call (608) 225-4809 by Wednesday, May 13, to register. For detailed information regarding this and other educational discussions hosted by Agrace, please visit agrace.org.
