Maureen Ceidro, bereavement counselor for Excela Health Home Care and Hospice, and Sandi Labuda, medical social worker at Excela, will be the first speakers in Saint Vincent College’s fall Series on Aging and Spirituality at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 20, at the Fred M. Rogers Center on the campus of Saint Vincent College. This series will explore the ways in which people can prepare meaningfully for the end of life.
The first presentation will feature a screening and discussion of Being Moral, a documentary produced by PBS Frontline and based on the best-selling book by Dr. Antul Gawande. The film explores the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illnesses and their relationship with doctors, nurses and family members who care for them. They will also share information about the legalities and components of living wills.
Admission is free and open to the public.
Persons of all ages are welcome to attend and share in the discussion and questions.
Parking for the physically challenged is available at the Fred M. Rogers Center. All participants may park in Parking Area A and enter the Rogers Center at the first floor entrance.
