They're some of the toughest, yet most important, conversations we can have - with our parents, children, friends, health professionals, or patients. They're the discussions surrounding end-of-life choices, and without them we risk not having the deaths we desire and deserve. Yet, many people are reluctant to bring up and discuss this emotionally charged topic.
On Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 6:30pm, Weinstein Hospice Director of Palliative Care Services and Community Outreach, Jenny Buckley, RN and Weinstein Hospice Bereavement Coordinator, Deanna Lawrence, will lead a pre-show discussion and Q&A on the concerns and misconceptions about end-of-life choices, palliative care and hospice.
The Alliance Theatre is presenting two provocative one-act plays by Pearl Cleage, Hospice + Pointing at the Moon, at the Fulton County Southwest Arts Center. The dramas center on a dying woman and her daughter who is trying to understand her mother as she faces her imminent death. Tickets can be ordered by calling the Alliance Theatre Box Office at 404-733-5000 or online at https://alliancetheatre.org/pearl.
Since 1999, the non-profit Vi and Milton Weinstein Hospice, now under the umbrella of the Jewish Home Life Communities, has provided end-of-life hospice care so patients can continue to live at home, be as pain-free as possible, and enjoy their remaining time with their loved ones and in the manner of their choosing.
