Care Connection – “Advance Directives, Palliative Care, and Hospice”

St. John’s Faith Community Nursing Ministry Team will offer a series of Care Connections each Wednesday in February in the Adult Meeting Room (AMR) covering a variety of health and wellness issues. The first Care Connection will be on end of life issues. Melissa Schmittler, RN, from Memorial Medical Center Palliative Care team will present information on Advanced Directives. She will not only talk about Medical Power of Attorney and end of life choices, but will also provide any help needed in filling out the forms. In addition, she will give information about Palliative Care and Hospice and the difference between them. Everyone is welcome and invited to come early for supper provided by the church at 5:45.
