Education for the Community

Need a speaker for your community group? Samaritan happily provides informative and dynamic speakers for your work, church, rotary, AARP, or senior group at no charge.
| TIMELY CONVERSATIONS |
(about 45 - 60 minutes)
We talk about the weather, sports, and breaking news. But too many of us shy away from talking about what matters most. If a surgery, accident, or serious illness prevented you from speaking for yourself, what would your wishes be? How would you define quality of life? This engaging conversation gets you thinking about your wishes, guides you to find the right time to talk about your wishes with those who are important to you, and helps you act by writing it all down. This program takes you beyond the advance care planning and living will legal documents.
| HOSPICE BASICS |
(about 30 minutes)
This enlightening program explores the basic foundation of hospice care, the Medicare Hospice benefit, the specific services and supplies that are available, and how Samaritan can address specialized situations.
| FIVE WISHES |
(about 40 - 60 minutes)
This DVD-and-discussion program addresses your personal, emotional, spiritual and medical wishes so that family and friends won’t have to guess what you want and make hard choices without knowing your wishes. The Five Wishes living will is valid in most states, including New Jersey. Participants bring the easy-to-complete booklet home at the end of the presentation to complete at their leisure. MORE >>
| CARING FOR VETERANS AT THE END OF LIFE |
(about 30 - 45 minutes)
This program explains how Samaritan provides care with dignity for those who served with honor. It details hospice and bereavement services that are covered by VA benefits, Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance, and how these services can benefit veterans and their families.
