HomeEnd of LIfe: Is there really a Good Death?


End of Life: Is there really a “good” death?

January 8, 2020 2:00 pm.


Let’s explore the crucial conversations and events that support a peaceful, loving end of life experience – not only for the dying but also for the family and loved ones. We will discuss the weeks leading up to a loved one’s death; the couple of years prior to death; the meaning and important use of palliative care (and how it differs from hospice); and what a “good” or “bad” death really means. What do you really have control over in the end of life process that supports a loving peaceful experience?


Laura L. Barry will lead this crucial conversation. She is the Hospice Care Transition Liaison with the Visiting Nurses Association of Philadelphia.



The program will be in the MacColl Room on the 2nd Floor of the First Presbyterian Church: 201 South 21st StreetPhiladelphia, PA 19103. The entrance is on 21st Street. There is an elevator for handicapped accessibility. Please let us know in advance if this is needed.
