Do your local hospice, clergy, grief counselors and other end-of-life care providers understand the value of having a funeral? In conjunction with the upcoming NFDA International Convention & Expo in Austin, TX, NFDA is offering a special webinar, End of Life Care: From One Set of Caring Arms to Another, on October 21, 2013, 1-3 p.m. CT, for funeral professionals, hospice caregivers, clergy and grief/bereavement professionals.
This webcast is an extraordinary opportunity to see an all-star panel of experts share important insights into how hospice professionals, funeral directors, members of the clergy and grief counselors can come together to support those at the end of life. Learn how each vocation has a specific role in serving client families and how collaborative efforts can provide a continuum of care at the end-of-life.
You and your staff are, of course, invited to view the free webcast.
