Memorial Home Services Hospice, ALMH to Sponsor Free Seminar on Discussing End-Of-Life Wishes


Memorial Home Services Hospice and Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital will host a free seminar in July on how people can discuss end-of-life wishes with their loved ones.

The seminar will begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 29, in the Steinfort Meeting Room at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital, 200 Stahlhut Drive.

“Many people often feel uncomfortable about discussing end-of-life wishes with someone they love,” said Ronda Dudley, director of home health and hospice at Memorial Home Services. “We’ll help people address this common discomfort associated with death and how people can open up the discussion to learn more about their loved one’s wishes.”

The program will also include showing the film, “Consider the Conversation: A Documentary on a Taboo Subject.”

A representative from Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital will present information on advance directives and provide take-home planning materials for families.

A light dinner will be provided. Because space will be limited, reservations are recommended by calling (217) 605-5008. Reservations will be accepted until July 25.
