Vigil and Bereavement
Saturday, November 16, 10 am to 11:30 am
RSVP by November 14
Sharon Imperatore, RN, patient care manager, Angelic Hospice
Loretta Beisel, certified bereavement volunteer, Angelic Hospice
As a hospice volunteer, friend or family member you may present when the patient is passing, and will also be part of the bereavement process. Stilling vigil with someone during their final hours or days, gives family a break while not leaving the patient alone. This session will discuss what to expect when a patient is their final hours and how you can help with this transition. Hospice provides family with bereavement support for more than a year after the patient passes, and volunteers help provide a compassionate ear to the bereaved. This session will discuss how you can help those left behind to better cope with their loss.
