End of Life Dinner Discussion
August 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFREE
August’s Dinner Discussion will feature the film “Aging America – Coping with Loss, Dying, and Death in Later Life”
The film is provided by Hospice Foundation of America’s Living with Grief Program. America is aging at a rapid rate with 10,000 people in the U.S. turning 65 every day. Medicare is expected to include 80 million enrollees by 2040. The vast majority of this growing population will likely face multiple losses – spouse, partner, independence, identity – and complex medical care needs. How can mental health professionals, healthcare providers, clergy, bereavement counselors, and the wider community support the growing number of aging Americans through their losses and healthcare challenges in later life? Aging America panelists integrate their expertise to deliver an in-depth discussion on innovative programs and new approaches to support older adults.
Event is free with dinner provided. Thank you Benton-Franklin Community Health Alliance for providing dinner!
