Many families have little or no experience caring for someone who is dying. How can hospice help you and your family? What makes hospice a “special kind of care”? What’s the difference between palliative care and hospice? Who’s eligible for hospice? Who pays for hospice? This workshop will address these questions and more as we continue our conversations about being mortal and advance care planning. Chaplain Edward Holland, Park Nicollet Advance Planning Volunteer, will present this topic.
