Please thank SouthernCare Hospice for providing the refreshments and the Willows for sponsoring our guest entertainer. Cost is $3.50 and free for Club 301 premium members.
Come early at 1:00 pm to learn more about hospice and palliative care from Christal Williams of SouthernCare Hospice. Christal will answer your common questions such as who qualifies for hospice, when you should ask about hospice and does Medicare cover the cost of hospice.
Cheri Milton, counselor from Agrace and a published author, will be our guest speaker on Wednesday, October 19, at 8:00 am. She will give a presentation about grief and the holidays. Most people look forward to the holiday season. It is filled with the gathering of friends and family, the preparation of delicious foods and other special traditions. During this time we hear much about glad tidings and joy. But when we have lost a loved one, facing the holidays can be a lonely and difficult time. While others celebrate, we may be mourning and longing for that one who is no longer there. This
presentation offers help to people grieving during the holiday season. Those in attendance will learn coping skills to assist them through the season and ideas for creating holiday rituals to remember loved ones in a special way. The presentation and delicious Colonial Club catered breakfast is only $4. Sign up in the main office by Friday, October 14, to reserve your spot. Please join us in thanking the Sun Prairie Health Care Center for helping to sponsor this monthly program.
