Part Two of the Hospice and Dementia Care:
What you Need to Know and How We Can Help

HELPERS is in the process of planning for Part Two of the Hospice and Dementia Care: What you Need to Know and How We Can Help presentation held on August 21st at the Senior Community Center. The presenters shared such valuable information and answered so many questions that it was determined that Part Two would be beneficial. As always, this is open to all community members who might be interested. As soon as we have a date set, we’ll get the information out.
