Savvy Seniors Series: “The Differences Between Palliative & Hospice Care”

As part of The Classic’s ongoing Savvy Seniors Series program, Cindy Bednar, R.N. at Mayo Clinic Home Health & Hospice will present “The Differences Between Palliative & Hospice Care” on Wednesday, October 3 from 3:45 to 5 p.m.

If you or loved ones are facing a serious illness, you’ve probably been hearing a lot about treating pain. You may have heard the terms “palliative care” or “hospice.” Both are meant to bring comfort and relief, but they differ in some important ways. To get the right kind of care in your situation, you need to have a good idea of what each service offers. During her presentation, Cindy will explore what these services can offer and how they may extend life, but in different methodologies.

 “Savvy Seniors Series,” is a free monthly information session that is open to the general public and is held at The Classic at Hillcrest Greens. Each session features a different speaker with a message focused on enhancing the quality of life for seniors. Light refreshments will be available along with door prize drawings. Registration for the October 3 presentation is required by calling 715-839-0200 by Monday, October 1.
