Ministerial Training on End of Life Care

Tuesday November 10th and Thursday November 12th, 2020

9:00 am to 12:00 pm

This two part virtual workshop is being presented at no charge by interdisciplinary hospice team members of Good Shepherd Hospice for the ministerial community including clergy of all denominations and their congregational care teams in recognition of National Pastoral Care Week.

At Good Shepherd Hospice, we know that living with serious illness is full of uncertainties, that caring for those with chronic conditions is hard and living with life limiting disease is scary. Often those we turn to for guidance are those who care about us the most. Unfortunately, their care for us does not translate into knowing how to take care of us.

Join us and learn:

Day One November 10th 9 am to 12 pm

How to support your congregant’s needs: Living with and caring for those with serious conditions and life limiting illness.

What is Advanced Care Planning?

• Simplify this often confusing topic and learn:

• Why a DPOA for healthcare is necessary for everyone 18 years of age and older.

• Options available to ensure your health care preferences are known so that you and your loved ones receive the care you desire.

• Get answers to your questions regarding confusing legal terms and medical treatments.

Understanding Palliative and Hospice Care

Those who have experienced palliative and hospice services commonly state they wish they had known about hospice sooner. Learn what palliative care and hospice services provide, who it is appropriate for and how to know when it's time, and how it is paid for.

Day Two November 12th 9 am to 12 pm

How to support your congregant’s needs: Emotional and Spiritual Support and End of Life

Grief and bereavement support.

• Services provided for the individual and their family both during the time they are receiving hospice services and continuing bereavement care for the family after a death.

We Honor Veterans and the Hospice Volunteer

• Programs specific to meet spiritual needs and honor those who have served in the military and the importance of recognizing the military service of our Veterans at end of life.

• How hospice volunteers support the hospice team, individuals and their families.

We look forward to your joining us!
