Let’s talk about Hospice!

There are so many myths about hospice care. In this session, Dr. Terry Melvin of Partners In Care 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.
