Helping when you need it most
On December 13, Hospice of Western Kentucky held its Evening of Remembrance for 2012. Our Evening of Remembrance is a night to honor family and friends who have passed. Prior to hanging ribbons on our Tree of Memories, we share a very touching video montage of our loved ones. We want to thank everyone who volunteered and helped make the evening a success, as well as Bellevue Baptist Church for allowing us the use of their beautiful facility.
This year’s speakers were Dr. Joan Harold, MD, MHO, FAAHPM, FACP, and Dr. Phyllis McElwain, PhD, CADC.
Dr. Harrold is the Medical Director and Vice President, Medical Services, Hospice of Lancaster County (Pennsylvania) and is board certified in Internal Medicine and Hospice and Palliative Care Medicine. Dr. Harrold is the co-author of “Handbook for Mortals: Guidance for People Facing Serious Illness.
Dr. McElwain has a PhD in Behavioral Health. She is in private practice. Dr. McElwain previously was the Director of Out-Patient Psychiatric Services and Substance Abuse Services. She is the author of the book, “Facing Tomorrow: A Guide for Living after Loss.”
