The celebration of life is a key value for the creation of a sustainable planet. The life cycle coming to an end is part of that process. Palliative and Hospice Care: what is it and whom does it serve? When might be the time to explore hospice care for a loved one or for us? Tucson Medical Center’s Children’s Hospice is the only inpatient hospice facility for children in Southern Arizona, how do their services help support not only those children but the families? At the center of hospice and palliative care, is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free and with dignity, and that our families will receive the support they need to allow us to do so. Join us to hear from two influential leaders and phenomenal caregivers about a difficult topic for people to discuss. They will share their insights and experiences to help us all bridge that gap. This show made possible due to the generous support of Tucson Medical Center.
