Celebrating the Sacredness of Life and Death

Panelists: Cheryl Fitzgerald, C-GNP, C-ANP;
Sharon Wolff, MSW; and Richard Gamache, MS, CNHA, FACHCA

Learn how a group of people from different disciplines can work together to improve end-of-life care and how we honor death for all members of the community.  Learn about the four points of a mission statement that changed one organization’s approach: 

  • We believe death is sacred;
  • We believe that no one should die alone;
  • We believe staff, families and Elders need time and space to grieve; and
  • We honor the memory of every life we have been privileged to touch. 

Elmhurst Extended Care’s Celebration of Life program was honored by Rhode Island Quality Partners as the recipient of the Advancing Innovation in Healthcare Award in 2009.  Our distinguished panelists will share how Celebration of Life is not only devoted to improving end-of-life care, but also to celebrating the lives of Elmhurst community members.

 

Cheryl Fitzgerald, Director of Clinical Services at Elmhurst Extended Care, is a nurse practitioner certified in geriatrics and an Eden Alternative Mentor.  Sharon Wolff, Director of Social Services, is an Eden Alternative Mentor and Chair of Elmhurst’s Celebration of Life Committee.  Richard Gamache serves as Administrator of Elmhurst Extended Care.  He is also an Eden Alternative Educator and Mentor.  Join us on August 18th for this inspiring webinar experience!
