Hospice program to focus on spirituality

Central Homecare & Hospice, Inc., will present “Hospice and the Clergy: Coordinating Care at the End-of-Life” from 8 a.m. to noon, Tuesday, Aug. 22, at the Alexanderwohl Mennonite Church, Goessel.

The mission and philosophy of hospice is to provide support to maximize the quality of the time remaining for a terminally ill patient and his or her family. To accomplish the mission, the hospice team addresses four universal issues with the patient: physical, emotional, social and spiritual.

The issue of spirituality is the central, deepest and most complex human need that gives meaning, helps make sense out of life, and gives peace when facing death.

For more information, call Donna E. Becker at 316-283-8220.

The program requires no fee, but preregistration is necessary by Aug. 21.

Those unable to attend the meeting but wanting more information are encouraged to attend.
