She was one of the co-founders of the Pat Roche Hospice Home in Hingham and currently works in Care Coordination at one of the major hospitals in Boston. The presentation may be a good starting point for each of us to be informed when the time may come for either of these care options. A Q & A period will follow the presentation. Sponsored by the South Shore Chapter of Mass Citizens for Life.
