Hospice Explores End-of-Life Care during Oct. 19 Program

Blue Ridge Hospice and Dr. Martha Calihan, of Five Stones Healing and Wellness, will offer a free screening of the documentary “Being Mortal” at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 19, at the Cornwall Medical Pavilion in Leesburg.

The film will be shown in the first floor meeting room at Blue Ridge Hospice’s office, Suite 200A, 224A Cornwall St. NW. The film explores hopes and expectations of patients and their families, as well as the care for the dying and the relationships between patients and their doctors.

After the screening, the audience can participate in a conversation on how to identify and communicate wishes about-end-of-life intentions and preferences.

The free screening is made possible by a grant from The John and Wauna Harman Foundation and the Hospice Foundation of America. For more information, contact Jeanne Mezzatesta at 540-313-9266.
