Are you dealing with a serious illness or caring for an older adult with a serious illness? If so, you probably have questions about getting the best care without sacrificing quality of life. Palliative care can help provide relief from the symptoms, pain and stress of a serious illness.
Join us for this one-day conference featuring national palliative care expert Diane E. Meier, MD, FACP, director of the Center to Advance Palliative Care.(CAPC) Dr. Meier can help you understand how palliative care can help your older loved one, even if curative treatments are underway. The program will feature information you can use, like how palliative care can help your loved one stay as healthy and independent as possible, how to make sure your loved one's goals and desires are the top priority, and how to manage your own stress.
