PRLog - Feb. 3, 2011 - On Thursday, February 24 from 10am – 3 pm Hospice at Home is offering a a free Benevolent Touch Community Workshop at CrownPointe Senior Living Community, 4232 Red Arrow Highway, Stevensville. Lunch will be provided at no charge by CrownPointe.

Caregivers and family members who care for someone will benefit from this educational opportunity. Benevolent Touch is a special way to communicate with non-verbal individuals on another level. This type of communication expresses love, safety and security. Benevolent Touch is a caregiving method that has been used in healthcare for over 10 years and is especially beneficial for those with Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia or sensory loss, chronic pain or severe disabilities.

This free workshop, offered by Hospice at Home and supported in part by a grant from the Hospice Education Institute, is limited to 10 people. Registration is required by calling Brenda Haueisen at 269-429-7100.

Hospice at Home is the non-profit community hospice focusing on the patient and family regardless of the patients' diagnosis, treatment choices, or ability to pay. It provides quality care to those adjusting to living with a serious illness, facing death, anticipating the death of a loved one, or healing their grief after the death of a loved one. Hospice at Home places an emphasis on the emotional, social, and spiritual needs of those who need care and those receiving support services. Serving Berrien, Cass, Van Buren, and Allegan Counties, the care is coordinated by a team of physicians, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, spiritual care counselors, bereavement coordinators, and trained volunteers. Extending this care, Lory’s Place, a bereavement and education center that builds hope and strength for every grieving family, is available to anyone in Southwest Michigan or Northern Indiana.

If you are interested in Benevolent Touch, or for more information, please call Hospice at Home, (269) 429-7100 or toll free at (800) HOSPICE; or go to www.hospiceathomecares.org.
