Workshops to focus on end-of-life care

MEREDITH -- A free program starting this month will offer a valuable resource to local residents and caregivers. Staff from Lakes Region Visiting Nurse Association and the Center Harbor Congregational Church will hold the weekly series focusing on end-of-life care at LRVNA's offices at 186 Waukewan St. in Meredith.

A variety of guest speakers are lined up for the Tuesday evening series, which will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. starting April 7. The final program is May 12. People can come to as many of the meetings as they wish.

Discussions will follow the Bill Moyers series, "On Our Own Terms," and will center on the many facets of end-of-life care, including physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual issues.

Refreshments will be served.

Two years ago, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that more Americans aged 65 or older were dying at home, rather than in a hospital. These days, many working adults in the so-called "sandwich generation," are finding themselves in difficult situations: struggling to raise their children while caring for an ill or elderly parent at the same time.

More information about the workshops can be obtained by calling 603-279-6611 or visiting www.lrvna.org.
