Vilija Idzelis-Wlosinski,

Angela Hospice Community Liaison

Birmingham NEXT

2121 Midvale St.

Birmingham, MI 48009

 

 

Join us as Vilija Idzelis-Wlosinski, Angela Hospice Community Liaison, shares an enlightening introduction to the topic of hospice, debunking myths of hospice care and opening understanding of how hospice embraces and enhances life.

There will be a special raffle basket for those who actively participate in the workshop presentation.

 

What is a Support Group? A group of people who meet together to learn more about Parkinson’s and the services available for people affected by this condition. Who knows more about Parkinson’s than the people who live with it and their partners who help? A group brings together people with a common bond. After attending a meeting, so many people say, “And I thought I was the only one with this problem.”

 

All future meetings will be held on the second Monday of each month at 6:00 pm at Birmingham NEXT.
