Let’s talk about Hospice!

There are so many myths about hospice care. In this session, Dr. Greg Phelps of Hospice of Chattanooga will explore these myths and clarify this very important service. We will also explore how to support someone who has been admitted to hospice from what you should say when someone has been told they are dying to how you can support them.

This class is in partnership with Hospice of Chattanooga, Welcome Home of Chattanooga and The Chattery.
