Lebanon hospital hosts free seminar on end-of-life planning

SHARE

When it comes to end-of-life planning, all the decisions involved can be overwhelming. Join Jeffrey Lear, MD, of Samaritan Evergreen Hospice, for a free seminar on how best to plan for end-of-life medical care.

The seminar takes place Tuesday, April 21, 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital in conference rooms B and C. Pre-registration is required. To register, call toll free 1-855-873-0647 or visit samhealth.org/BeHealthy.

Lear will break down the planning tasks into manageable portions, answering questions such as:

  • Where do I start?
  • What is an advance directive — and do I need one?
  • How can I control my end-of-life care if I can’t speak for myself?
  • What is hospice care, and why would I ever need a hospice house?
  • I’m afraid; it’s all so unknown!

Refreshments and useful materials will be provided.

Planning ahead for your medical care is a gift you leave to your survivors, and it allows you to enjoy life now rather than fearing the end of it.
