Benevilla hosts “The Big Difference: Hospice vs. Palliative Care,” a Zoom workshop, at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 14.
The interactive presentation features senior care partners from Faith Hospice and Hope Care Hospice.
Both palliative care and hospice care provide comfort and support while attending to the emotional and spiritual needs of those facing an end-of-life situation. The workshop will explain differences between these two types of care.
The free presentation is part of the Benevilla Educational Event Series. Each workshop features carefully selected professionals who can answer questions and provide resources for senior life changes, with an emphasis on the COVID-19 pandemic.
To reduce the risk of public exposure during the COVID-19 pandemic, Benevilla converted education workshops into livestream, online video events.
Upcoming workshops will cover a range of topics, from in-home care management to estate preparation and tax savings tips.
Reservations are required with a working email address to be used to receive a secure link and password as well as easy-to-follow instructions on how to attend via the secure Zoom video conference application.
