Request a Guest Speaker
Many people in our community are not aware of hospice services or what Hospice West Parry Sound is about. As we provide end-of-life supports to many families in the Parry Sound Community, we are often asked to speak to organizations and explain ways to get involved.
Hospice West Parry Sound provides guest speakers for professional organizations, service clubs, schools, businesses, churches and faith-based communities, seniors groups, and other community partners – all at no charge. Contact us if you would like to arrange for someone from Hospice to present for your group.
Some of the most requested topics include:
Hospice Philosophy of Care
This workshop provides an overview of the many services Hospice West Parry Sound offers.
Advance Care Planning
