Community Education

Wings of Hope Hospice is transforming the way the community views death and dying by sharpening its understanding of hospice. We want everyone in our service area to appreciate the unique role Wings of Hope Hospice plays in meeting the needs of end-of-life patients, and to choose hospice earlier, so that the benefits to the patient and family can result in a substantially improved quality of life for everyone. As the area’s expert in providing care to terminally ill patients, we will educate the community to appreciate hospice as a gift — of time, dignity, comfort and hope.

Our staff and volunteers meet with area businesses, churches, civic groups, nursing homes — in short, wherever we can help people understand death, dying and the role of hospice to support a more abundant life for end-of-life patients. Some topics we have covered in recent talks include

  • What is Hospice Care?
  • How to Prepare for the End of Life
  • How Death Affects a Family
  • How to Help a Friend Who’s Grieving
  • How to Help an Employee/Coworker Who’s Grieving
  • Caring for the Caregiver
  • The Value of Volunteerism
  • Advance Care Planning and Advance Directives
