© Hospice Volunteers of Waldo County 2019
•	What matters most in life? •	How can help your family feel comfortable with choices made around end of life care? •	Who do you want to make health care decisions for you if you can’t? •	How can you ease the burden of health care decision-making that your family might face?  •	Is a “living will” right for you?
Talking about what matters now can make things easier later, smoothing some of the challenges that arise for patients and families at the end of a life. We can help you explore these questions, and work with you to tailor a workshop for your group or organization. All our services are always free of charge. For more information CONTACT US
Conversations about what matters Hospice Volunteers of Waldo County offers
Hospice Volunteers of Waldo County END OF LIFE & BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT
Advance health care planning; are you wondering why it is important?  Are you procrastinating having the conversation with those closest to you?  Unsure of how to start that discussion? Join us, the Palliative Players, at our performance of End Stage.  Through improvised, unscripted role playing, we act out possible end of life scenarios and conversations. We explore decisions and wishes that might arise in a health crisis at the end of life, and offer suggestions for talking with loved ones. Afterwards, we will walk you through the advance directive and some of the common sticking points. You will have a chance to ask questions and learn how to get help filling out your advance directive.  Who knew that learning about your advance care planning options could be so entertaining?  Bring your family and friends, it is important information that everyone should have.  Follow us on Facebook for performance announcements and updates. These event are free and open to the public.       Supported by a grant from the Maine Community Foundation.
