Questions about hospice, palliative and end of life care, assisted living and residential/complex care are topics that people often do not know where to go to get their answers. The North Okanagan Hospice Society and partners want to assist those living with a chronic illness and their caregivers in seeking the information they need to make informed decisions about their own care.
The public is invited to the “Living Well Dying Well: Independence, Options, and the Power to Choose” freeinformation sessions about health care options. Health care professionals will talk about and answer questions about benefits, eligibility, access and costs related to hospice, palliative and end of life care available in the community, assisted living, residential/complex care and hospice.
There is no cost to attend however space is limited and pre-registration is required. To reserve your seat, please call the North Okanagan Hospice Society at 250-503-1800 Ext. 101.

These information sessions are in partnership with the Lumby Health Centre, Interior Health and the Okanagan Regional Library.
