What is Down East Hospice?

On February 18, 2023, former President Jimmy Carter entered home hospice care in Plains, Georgia, at 98 years old.

Will you need to use these wonderful services someday? 

As part of our series on “aging with dignity,” we offer this informative presentation on Hospice from Barbara Barnett, the Executive Director of Volunteer Services for Down East Hospice Volunteers (DEHV).  She will provide us with an interesting background on the history of hospice care and how and when it came to the U.S.A. She will share personal stories of her experiences during her 30+ years providing volunteer hospice care. Stories that will tug at your heart and others that will make you chuckle.

Class Information:  This is a hybrid class - held in-person in UM@M’s room Science 102 and via Zoom on April 30 from 10 AM to Noon.

Sponsored by: Sunrise Senior College, Machias, ME
