Join us in the Readings Gallery for this important event. In Demystifying Hospice, Karen Clayton uses story to show the practical assistance and emotional support provided by hospice social workers. Her passion is to show how hospice works, and dispel myths which keep folks from using hospice in a timely manner. End-of-life options, the importance of making choices, and completing advance directives are discussed. Helpful caregiver tips are included.

A social worker and sociologist, Karen Clayton has worked in public and private hospitals, a hospice, and as Director of Patient Services in the American Cancer Society, and taught at the university level. She is a member of the Oak Harbor Writing Group and Island County's chapter of the AAUW. She and her husband are completing a book about their three-year "slice of life" in the Philippines, under martial law during the Marcos regime, titled: The Gentle Clash of Cultures: A Lovers' Quarrel.
