April 15, 2015: Death and Taxes

All of us have confronted death in our families, among our friends, in the news and popular media. Yet, few issues remain more difficult to discuss than aging and dying.

Aging is a process. Caring individuals and organizations are working to help people who are in this process as well as helping their families. Join us to talk about ways to provide aging and death with dignity, comfort and compassion. We'll learn about elder care and hospice and palliative care and explore simple ideas for helping those who are aging and dying.

Join our dialogue on Wednesday, April 15 at 10:00 AM as we discuss spiritual and cultural practices for aging and dying and the growing hospice movement created to preserve dignity and family support even as people lose independence and die.

We invite your calls and email with questions and comments.
