A Place of Refuge: Hospice Origins, Myths, and Misconceptions

It started in the Middle Ages, and its name is the root for such words as hospitality, hospital, and hostel. November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, and hospices across the country are reaching out to raise awareness about the highest quality care for all people coping with life-limiting illnesses and their loved ones. Join us on Friday, November 18th for a special presentation, in partnership with the Natrona County Library, by the Community Liaison of Central Wyoming Hospice and Transitions, Susan Burk, and learn about the origins and philosophy of hospice care, the woman responsible for the current modern hospice movement, and why hospice probably isn’t what you may think it is. Knowledge is power, and it’s good to understand what hospice is, and isn’t, and know about the other services they provide to the community. This program is free and open to the public. 4:00pm-5:00pm in the Library’s Crawford Room. Call 577.7323 for more information.
