2020 Inspiring the Conversation: Think, Talk, Act!

Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice in partnership with ADRC of Sheboygan County, Embrace Care Management, Generations Intergenerational Center and the Senior Activity Center of Sheboygan, bring you a three-part series to inspire honest and meaningful conversations about morphine use during long-term illness or end-of-life, taking the mystery of palliative care and practical steps you can take today to be conversation ready.

FACT OR FICTION:  NAVIGATING THE USE OF MORPHINE IN LONG-TERM ILLNESS

In a culture where many are concerned about the use of opioids, separating fact from fiction surrounding the use of morphine for people with long-term illness or in hospice services to cope with pain and other symptoms is an important conversation.  The need for pain and symptom management to achieve comfort is very real.  Join us as our co-presenters: Christa Wilson, Pharm D, with Lakeshore Community Health, Amy Clark, NP with Richardson Palliative Care and Jennifer Haase, Social Worker MSW with Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice, walk through the benefits and limitations of morphine and other medications, as well as, the emotional aspect to using these medicines during a long-term illness or at end of life.

All are welcome to attend this FREE event.  Reservations are appreciated.  To reserve, please call Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice at 920-467-1800, toll-free at 866-467-2011or email community@ssrhospicehome.org.

TAKING THE MYSTERY OUT OF PALLIATIVE CARE: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PALLIATIVE CARE AND HOSPICE CARE?

Often people hear both palliative care and hospice care used interchangeably and this can cause confusion.  While both provide comfort care and support individuals and family, there are distinct differences.  Join us to learn how a palliative care team can assist in increasing the quality of life for you, a family member or friend with long-term illness.

BE CONVERSATION READY: BECAUSE WHEN IT COMES TO END OF LIFE, TALKING MATTERS!

When it comes to end-of-life care and quality of life, talking matters! Like most people, you know you should talk about your wishes for end-of-life care, but something gets in the way - like how to start or maybe denial that the time is now.

The series welcomes Patty Webster, Community Engagement Leader from The Conversation Project, a national campaign dedicated to helping people talk about their end-of-life wishes and what matters most.  Participants will be inspired to have their own conversation and learn more about how together we can make these conversations easier.  Join us because talking really does matter!

All are welcome to attend this FREE event.  Reservations are appreciated.  To reserve, please call Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice at 920-467-1800, toll-free at 866-467-2011or email community@ssrhospicehome.org.

Location: Kohler Memorial Theater, 333 Upper Rd, Kohler WI
