Support for Caregiver and Families during Serious Illness and End of Life
Presented as a collaborative effort of Abington Memorial Hospital's Office of Diversity and the Palliative Care program and the Dickens Auxiliary of the Abington Health Women's Board.
Our program is designed to provide education, guidance and support to caregivers and family members about caring for loved ones at the end of life. Although targeted to the African American community, all cultures deal with many of the same issues as people face the transition of a loved one at the end of life.
Keynote address by Pastor Corey Kennard, Duke University Institute for Care at the End of Life. Pastor Kennard previously presented at AMH in 2010 as part of the APPEAL Conference staff.
A short play will also be performed.
Caregivers and family members caring for loved ones at the end of life, faith-based health ministers; parish nurses, case managers; Palliative Care health professionals; social workers may particularly benefit from this program, but all are invited to attend. Continuing education credits pending.
Pre-registration is requested by calling 215-481-2986.
Registration opens at 8 am and a continental breakfast will be served from 8 to 8:45 am.
