Living with Grief Hospice Foundation of America Event:

Aging America: Coping with Loss, Dying, and Death in Later Life

HFA’s 26th Annual Living with Grief Program, Aging America: Coping with Loss, Dying, and Death in Later Life, will be moderated by Frank Sesno, Director of the School of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University.  The program will be shown locally at: Bonner General Health HSB, Room 101, at 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Thursday, May 16, 2019.

America is aging at a rapid rate with 10,000 people in the U.S. turning 65 every day.  Advanced age can bring a range of losses from a spouse or partner to independence and identity. Along with experiencing multiple losses, older people are more likely to suffer from multiple chronic conditions requiring complex medical care. Aging America: Coping with Loss, Dying, and Death in Later Life discusses how mental health professionals, healthcare providers, and the wider community can support the growing number of aging Americans through these losses.

2.5 hours of Continuing Education credits are available for a wide range of professions.  To learn more about this program, please contact Lissa DeFreitas at BGH Community Hospice at 208-265-1185 or lissa.defreitas@bonnergeneral.org.
