Juneau hospice group presents fall seminar
Hospice and Home Care of Juneau is hosting its first fall seminar, Support Issues in Death and Dying, for volunteers, students, health care providers and families and friends of those experiencing serious illness and loss.
The event will be held Oct. 14, 16, 19, 21, 28, 30 and Nov. 2 and 4 in the CCS Training Room (formerly St. Anns dining room) on Gold Street between Fifth and Sixth streets. Admission is free.
The seminar has grown out of widespread community interest in education about end-of-life issues. By making all sessions free and open to the public, HHCJ hopes to train future volunteers, as well as meet the needs of caregivers. Those who attend all sessions may become HHCJ in-home volunteers upon approval by the advisory committee. Health sciences credit is available upon request through the University of Alaska Southeast.
The wide variety of topics will be presented by community experts, many of whom are HHCJ staff and volunteers.
Parking is available on Gold Street in the lot directly across from the training room and in the lot on Sixth Street between Gold and Harris streets. Do not use the HHCJ parking lot or entrance on Harris Street, because the Healing After Loss bereavement group will be using those facilities.
For a detailed list of topics, times and speakers, call Jean Jasmine, HHCJ volunteer coordinator, at 463-6111.
