Walking Each Other Home

It’s not easy to talk about dying, but even one conversation can make a vital difference. All of us could be faced with opportunities to have these conversations with our grandparents, our parents, our spouses and our loved ones. Listen as Elizabeth Bertolini, a hospice and palliative care nurse, shares her many years of experience caring for the aging, in the hospital and long term care settings. You can access Beth’s slides here.
