End-of-Life: A Community Conversation will answer questions and provide support for local families

Posted: Updated:

Anyone is invited to "End-of-Life: A Community Conversation" Thursday at Jefferson Center in Roanoke. The evening will include a panel discussion about end of life issues and the services available to help local families.

Glenn and Lorie Powell's daughter, Madison died three years ago.  Carilion Clinic Hospice helped the family during a tough time.  No one ever completely recovers from losing a family member.

Lorie says, "I did a lot of praying and talking to God. We were trying to prepare ourselves.  We were both there with her when she went that was very important.  We knew she needed to be gone because she was suffering on this Earth.  I'm sure she is up walking and running and talking and doing things she didn't do here. We are just waiting on the day when we can see her again."

Lisa Sprinkel, Carilion Clinic Hospice Director explains, "I want this event this opportunity.  If one chooses the decision to be more oriented toward comfort care in many ways that means more health care."

"End-of-Life: A Community Conversation will be held from 6:00-8:00pm at Jefferson Center.  The event is free and open to anyone who wants to attend.  I will be moderating the discussion and WSLS 10 is honored to be a part of the event.
