Serena Lewis (MSW) will present: The Times They Are A-Changin’: What is a Palliative Approach To Care Requiring of Us Today?

It has been stated that it takes a village to raise a child. Our village is once again called upon in circumstances of dying, death and grief. Through embracing both aspects of the life span we respond through compassion and care as a community. Our medical and technological advancements have increased life spans and treatments for patients, but is there more to consider?

What does a palliative approach to care require of us in 2019 and how do we engage in our evolution of care that provides integration of person, family and community care?

Consider joining Colchester East Hants Hospice Society for a day of education and an opportunity to support an engaged community.

We asked Colchester East Hants Hospice Society NSCC work placement student, Cordelia Payne: Why is Hospice important to you?

"I chose to do my work placement with hospice because the care and support shown to families entering the grieving process has been a topic of interest of mine the past couple of years. I believe that death should not be a taboo subject.

It is something we all encounter in our lives and to be able to face it, cope with it, have the support of others within it, and to be able to make the choices best for us and honour the feelings of the deceased is a very empowering thing. I think it is one of the most beautiful things you can offer a person, to be able to support them in a time of such vulnerability and to let them know that they have the ability to make choices, even in a time where everything seems out of their control."
