Community Outreach and Education

Staying informed and up to date in these busy times can be a challenge. Hospice of the Northwest is here to help.

Community Outreach and Education

Outreach and Education Specialist
Käaren Flint

At Hospice of the Northwest, we believe in educating our communities. We want to help them understand the benefits of hospice care, what people should know about navigating aging and grief, and how to prepare for end-of-life.

To make this possible we have an education specialist who can speak to your organization, staff, residents, or residents’ families.

Educational Presentations and Staff Support

Just as we care for patients and their loved ones, we also care for the staff who provide support during the end of life journey. Whether you are working in a facility, senior living community, as an in-home caregiver, or you are part of our community, we are here for you.

We are available to speak at facilities, senior living communities, schools, service clubs, churches, and other community organizations. We will tailor the educational presentations to your group’s needs.

Call our office at (360) 814-5550 to learn more. You may also contact the Outreach and Education Team directly to request an educational presentation.
