For anyone who missed us at Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center-there’s still a few more chances to catch the PBS program “Being Mortal”. In support of National Healthcare Decision month in April, CompassionCare will be showing this documentary again throughout our community to help raise awareness and stress the importance of advance healthcare planning.
“Being Mortal” delves into the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness. The film investigates the practice of caring for the dying and explores relationships between patients and their doctors. It follows surgeon, Dr. Atul Gawande, as he shares stories from the people and families he encounters. After the screening, you can participate in a guided conversation on how to take concrete steps to identify and communicate wishes about end-of-life goals and preferences. You can watch a short trailer here:
