Speaker: Deborah Kesheshian, Doane House and Margaret Bahen Hospice,
Hospice is a continuum of care, that can begin very early in a person’s diagnosis with a life-limiting illness. Doane House Hospice has offered community care for those with a terminal illness who are living at home since it opened in 1989. Staff and volunteers also offer care for the care-givers, specializing in grief and bereavement support. Margaret Bahen Hospice is a 10-bed facility that opened in November 2017. It provides 24/7 nursing-medical care, social work services, spiritual support, pharmacy & complementary therapies to care for residents and their families. Over 150 volunteers are currently involved.
Deborah will help us understand the scope and service of hospice care in our region today.

“Hospice: The Way Healthcare is Meant to Be”
Deborah has been the Director of Development for Margaret Bahen Hospice and Doane House Hospice since 2017. She has a passion for hospice care since her own father died at Hospice Georgian Triangle. She was very grateful for the dignified and compassionate care her father was given and for the support the family received.
