End of Life Issues - The Hospice Movement

Churches Together in Settle and District have organised a series of Talks on Wednesday evenings during Lent. entitled "Facing up to End of Life Issues - Practicalities". The first was held on Wednesday 16 March and was on Legal Issues. We held it in the Primary Room of the Church Hall - and just squeezed a record(?) 48 people in. We had excellent talks by the local solicitor and a consultant at Airedale hospital.

So the following week we held the talk in the church itself. The talk was on the Hospice movement. That was useful because Tom Keating, the speaker from St Gemma's Hospice, had brought some powerpoint slides.
We had scones and coffee both before and after the talk.

Next week  (Wed 30th) the talk is "Care and Support for the Terminally Ill at Home" - Come at 7.15 for scones before the talk at 7.30pm
