It is important to make living with a life threatening illness, dying, death, and grief a graceful process.
Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) February 3, 2011
Granite Mountain Home Care & Hospice, a division of Professional Healthcare and a leading provider of home nursing, rehabilitation therapy, and hospice services in Prescott, Arizona, has sponsored a hospice educational event at the Prescott Resort and Conference Center on Thursday, February 10, from 12:30 to 4:00 p.m. The keynote speaker, Barbara Karnes, R.N., has been a hospice nurse for nearly 30 years, and is an author on the process of dying. She is recognized for her help in revolutionizing hospice’s role in end-of-life care for patients and their family members, and states that, “it is important to make living with a life threatening illness, dying, death, and grief a graceful process.” The event is open to the public.
“We are eager for Prescott area residents to know about this seminar,” states John Griscavage, CEO. “We often hear how death is a natural process of life, but few of us understand its final stages, and how patients and families can benefit from hospice care months earlier than they usually request it.” Research by The National Association for Home Care & Hospice, the leading trade association in this industry, has found that most people do not know about insurance and Medicare coverage for in-home hospice care, nor the availability and nature of these services.
Tickets to the event are $28 per person. For reservations, call 928-776-6124. More information about Barbara Karnes and additional resources are available at gonefrommysight.com.
