All about Hospice



All About Hospice is the topic for the Art of Aging/of Dying series at the Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita on Wednesday, July 24, 2019, from 3 to 5 pm.
At this month’s Art of Aging program, Shannon Hoff and Donna Rumbarger, of Adventist Home Care, will present an overview on Hospice. The event will be held Wed. July 24, 3-5pm at Hoffman Center for the Arts, 594 Laneda Ave., Manzanita. Admission is $5.
Hoff and Rumbarger will address the questions most people have about Hospice to in-clude.
• What Hospice is and isn’t.
• How you pursue Hospice, and when you should do so.
• How a family or patient decides on Hospice as the next step.
• What role your doctor plays in care once Hospice is involved.
• What Hospice does and what they provide, and what they don’t provide.
• What Hospice benefits insurance covers.

Besides being a Lead Customer Care Associate, Hospice Volunteer Coordinator through Adventist Home Care-Tillamook Western Health Resources, Donna Rumbarger was previously what she calls a “Hospice daughter.” Her father was on Hospice in 2011, which means she has seen this process from both sides . . . the emotional and the clinical. She will share that perspective as well.
Shannon Hoff is Manager of Adventist Home Care, Tillamook.
