A Conversation about Cremations and Celebrations is the second of four free educational workshops in a series titled “Approaching the Unapproachable: Finding Peace in Preparedness”. Christine Crompton, community outreach coordinator, John F. Slater Funeral Home, will present. Family Hospice has partnered with Home Instead Senior Care to address a series of important end-of-life issues, as we often are more reactive than proactive when it comes to making these uncomfortable yet necessary decisions. Community members are invited to attend for one or all programs. Light refreshments will be served. Upcoming sessions include the following: “Funeral Trends: Past, Present and Future” on Thurs., Oct. 20 from 4-5 p.m. “Honoring Those Who Served: Veterans’ Care and Assistance” on Fri., Nov. 4 from 2-3 p.m. Eric Horwith, Family Hospice regional director of growth and business development, explains why this free lecture series is being offered for the public to attend: “This was developed because of suggestions from our direct care staff who, through their daily interactions with patients and families, felt that such topics are essential in helping to support each and every individual’s end-of-life journey. Our hope is that by educating the community on these important life decisions, we can assure that people facing end of life can have peace of mind that their personal wishes and desires have been honored.”
