PRESENTATION ON PALLATIVE CARE
In light of the National Hospice Palliative Care Week, May 7-13, 2023, CWL invites everyone to attend our scheduled Members’ Meeting on Monday, May 8, 2023 at 6:30 pm, in the Parish Hall. We will be learning from a virtual presentation on palliative care:
- to assist caregivers and family members facing a terminal illness
- to understand palliative care from a theological, ethical and medical perspective.
Save the date! We hope to see you all there.
‘Talking Matters’, is a research based ‘life‘ drama on living with Dementia issues. This award-winning play tells the story of David and Inga, two elderly residents in a long term care home and their challenges with volunteer and professional caregivers. Please pick up a poster with more detailed information at the back of the church.
