Hospice nurse to speak at Harmony Grove Baptist
On Wednesday, November 19, at 6:30 p.m., Harmony Grove Baptist Church near Topping will host Pat Wertman, an RN who is director of hospice at Walter Reed Riverside Hospital in Gloucester. She will address “all you wanted to know about hospice but were afraid to ask.”
Every person has matchless value through all of life’s stages. Hospice physicians, nurses and counselors put this belief into action by using their talents and energy to care for those who are terminally ill. They provide support and comfort to their loved ones as well as physical, psychological and spiritual assistance. Hospice care frequently provides assistance in the home so that patients can be surrounded by family and friends as they deal with end-of-life issues.
Everyone is invited to attend and learn about hospice criteria and services. November is Hospice Month.
