Palliative care and hospice care – Diane Fasselius

Diane Fasselius, RN from Hospice of Dubuque will talk with us about palliative care and hospice care.  Both provide comfort care. If needed, palliative care can be used any time during  a person’s disease while still receiving treatment for the disease. Hospice care begins after treatment of the disease is stopped.  The focus for both is comfort and quality of life with spirituality be a strong component for many.  Ms. Fasselius will give us information, answer our questions, have a conversation with us.
