Plant a Seed - Start A Conversation

Plant a Seed - Start A Conversation

may14-hospice-muskoka-plant-a-seed

Key Note Speaker: Paul Davidson, 

Taking control and making a plan.  Including hope in Goals of Care. Providing a spiritual prospective of hope while supporting a client’s beliefs.  Paul will draw from his years of experiences providing Spiritually Supportive Care for the terminally ill in the community. His approach to personal hope will give you a prospective on how to redefine the word/meaning of “HOPE”.  We so often attach the meaning of hope to a medical cure or a disease outcome when in fact it often surrounds spiritual peace and coping during the reality of the dying process. Providing quality when quantity is not an option.

Panel  presentation

Community Supportive Care: In a circle of care who are the players and how do the pieces fit together.  Each panel member will explain their role and how you can use their expertise to improve outcomes.  Fanslow-Brunjes defines hope for the dying as “an inner dynamic life force that helps each dying person to live life until the moment of death. It can take many forms— hope for a cure, to see one more Christmas, or to live through the night.” Depending on the goals of the patient, four stages or phases can occur: a hope for (1) cure; (2) treatment; (3) the prolongation of life; and (4) a peaceful death.
