Inaugural Workshop Helps Those Facing End-Of-Life Decisions
Hospice of Palm Beach County and Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches, Memorial Presbyterian Church, and Palm Beach Atlantic University joined forces, hosting a unique five-hour workshop for professionals and family members assisting individuals with end-of-life issues.
The event took place Saturday, Feb. 9 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the DeSantis Family Chapel at Palm Beach Atlantic University. The “Navigating the End of Life Journey” symposium attracted more than 50 guests and was designed to help family members find answers to tough questions and provide guidance to professionals working closely with people in the final years of life.

“The workshop was a huge success from the attendance to the amazing speakers,” said Leah Sharrock, a field educator for Hospice of Palm Beach County. “Attendees had the opportunity to learn about what to expect when it comes to end-of-life care, making them more informed and able to make better decisions about end-of-life care.”
“This workshop helped those of us who know someone facing these difficult
decisions – or are facing them ourselves – become more informed about what to expect,” says Charlie Ring, executive director of Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches. “The expert panel allowed each of us to be better equipped to reach out, support and comfort those facing these difficult decisions.”
