A Caregiver’s Guide to Palliative Care: Improving Quality of Life

Wednesday, May 6th, 12:00pm-1:30pm

In our modern world, people are living longer but not necessarily better lives. As a caregiver, managing older adults’ chronic illness can present uncertainties and challenges as you try to balance myriad medical needs with overall well-being. What many people don’t know is that there is specialized medical care specifically for people living with serious illness called Palliative care, which can significantly improve quality of life.

Join us for this free webinar where we will discuss symptoms and illnesses commonly treated with Palliative care, the goals of Palliative care, the difference between Palliative care and Hospice, and the benefits of Palliative care for older adults and their caregivers. For more information, contact Abby Weiss, LMSW at 718-596-8789 ext. 317 or aweiss@heightsandhills.org
