Community Conversations: Dying with Dignity

April 14, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

There are so many taboos and inhibitions about discussion and appropriate action around the end of  life, and one consequence of that is prolonged suffering and discomfort both for those who are dying, and those around them who struggle to know how best to support them.

In this Community Conversation, Dying with Dignity, our panelists will lay the groundwork for a discussion with their perspectives, insights and information.

Sandy Webber, RN, APU (Med /surg) ,Monadnock Community Hospital,

Julie Thibault, owner, Jellison Funeral Home

Jeff Crocker, attorney

Ilona Kwiecien, Hospice Chaplain

Following a short presentation from each panelist there will be moderated conversation, and widespread participation is encouraged.

Community Conversations is a series that explores many of the issues impacting our communities. A partnership between the Monadnock Center for History and Culture and the Monadnock Ledger-Transcript, each Conversation features local experts talking about challenges faced by our communities. Some issues are global in nature, but each conversation is designed to examine the topic from a local perspective. The program provides residents with the opportunity to learn more about key issues impacting their communities, to engage in a civil dialog with speakers and with each other, and to come away with a sense that there are things that individuals and communities can do to foster change and improvement. The program is free and open to all.

Community Conversations are proudly sponsored by:
