What is hospice to you? What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear that word?

The truth is most people have a general idea about hospice, yet few know what hospice really is and the extensive benefits available to the loved one and their families. There are so many myths in the community and if most knew the truth about hospice, they would access hospice care more often or at least sooner. What should you know?

May is Older Americans Month and the Capitol Hill Counseling and Resource Center is excited to present a free virtual seminar, "Top 10 Myths Our Community Has About Hospice and the Truths that Could Help Us" on Tuesday, May 30 at 6 pm EST. The hospice expert and presenter is Donna R. Gayles, Associate Director for Capital Caring Health's Center for Health Equity and Director for Client Relations in D.C. During the seminar, she will dispel the most common myths in the community and share the information you may need to make decisions now and/or in the future.

The seminar will cover topics like:

  • What does hospice include?
  • When should hospice care start?
  • How long does hospice care last?
  • Who pays for hospice?
  • What does hospice care say about my faith?

Register now! Spots are limited. You are invited to send questions to get them answered during the May 30th session. Send all questions to khayes@chcarc.org no later than Friday, May 26.
