This series is for all of us planning for the future, taking care of aging loved ones, or for those beginning to consider these decisions. 

October 8: Understanding Hospice Care, Led by Chip Cagle, MRE, MBA, Director of Spiritual Formation for Capital Caring and West Virginia Caring; and Nancy Crowley, RN, Executive Director Capital Caring Merrifield - We’ll welcome a member of Capital Caring Hospice to talk about Hospice Care—what it is, what it is not, what are the range of services and supports offered, what are the costs and insurance coverages, and why should one choose hospice care. The theory and practices of Hospice Care have developed greatly in the past years, come learn more and get answers to your questions. 

October 15: Led by Lynne Kennedy, PhD, MSN, RN, Director of Palliative Care Service for Inova Health Systems - Join us for a helpful discussion on health care choices, advance care planning, palliative care, and more.

October 22: Led by Nancy Dezan, BSW, Eldertree Care Services - Join Nancy to talk about planning for aging, including how to remain in your home, resources available to help, and how an aging care manager can help. Excellent information and resources for caregivers and for those making plans.
