Discussions about end-of-life issues are not the easiest to talk about, but in order to reduce stress in the long-term, it’s best to have this difficult conversation early on.  SAGE Eldercare Director of HomeCare, Ellisa Lee, RN, BS, DCP, and SAGE Director of Spend-A-Day, Deanna Butters, MAOM, CDP, will explore these issues on Wednesday, October 30 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.  This program, which is free and open to the public, will take place at 290 Broad Street in Summit.

In addition to discussing end-of-life decisions, SAGE’s directors will discuss emotions and grief.  The goal is to provide families and their loved ones with techniques on dealing with grief and support service information that families can use in their time of need.

To register for the October 30 program, please call 908.598.5548 or email education@sageeldercare.org.
