Several of us from the Art of Aging & Dying Program met recently after a long hiatus to discuss various current and inter-related issues in our community:
- The imminent closure of Nehalem Bay House assisted living and how to move forward
- Caring for the dying during the pandemic (not specifically covid patients)
- Challenges of finding caregivers and other support, both paid and volunteer.
- Currently Tillamook Hospice requires a 24/7 in home caregiver plan in place prior to admission to hospice services – a potential hardship that may restrict access to services for dying individuals and their families.
We invite you to join us for a Zoom conversation about these issues and how we as individuals and as a community can help on WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 23 from 2-4 pm.
We see this as not so much about coming up with solutions as providing a ‘place’ to gather and discuss what’s being seen or felt – both challenging and inspiring.
It will be so great to meet together again!
CONTACT ONE OF US TO SIGN UP – that’s the only way we can send you a Zoom link. Also feel free to contact any of us with questions.
