Milford Regional to Host Palliative Care Forum

The Patient and Family Advisory Council at Milford Regional Medical Center will present an informational session on palliative care, entitled “Your Life Now...at its Best.”

The forum will be held on Thursday, May 19 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Physicians Conference Center located on the ground floor of the main building.

Palliative care is specialized care that manages the symptoms and pain of serious illness. Palliative care can be provided alongside curative care and is for people of any age, and at any stage in an illness.

The program is presented by Dr. Anthony Wilson from the Milford Regional’s Palliative Care Team, and members of the hospital’s High Risk Mobile Team will also be in attendance.

Admission is free and open to all. Light refreshments will be served. A book raffle will also be held.

Pre-registration is encouraged by calling 508-422-2280 or emailing Marlene at mphaneuf@milreg.org .

This program is also sponsored by the Community Hospital Acceleration, Revitalization and Transformation (CHART) grant.
