Hospice is an essential option when we think about making choices for personalized care throughout the end of life. The experienced staff of Calvert Hospice will address:

  • The many myths surrounding hospice care and explain the referral process for hospice services,
  • The role of the physician during hospice care, and
  • The best time to begin benefiting from the support hospice caregivers can provide.

There will be a lengthy opportunity for Q&A to address individual concerns.  Participants should bring a lunch. Calvert Hospice will provide dessert.

Seating is limited, so register early for seminars. All classes will be held in Classroom 2 on the Lower Level of Calvert Memorial Hospital.
