Hospice of St. Lawrence Valley recognizes and values the importance of having conversations long before the end of life. This SOAR presentation addresses the importance of talking to your doctor about end-of-life care, Palliative Care and Hospice services. Most importantly, the presentation will focus, and conversation prompts to have with your family and friends.
