Pioneers of Hospice: Changing the Face of Dying

Pioneers of Hospice: Changing the Face of Dying provides us with a personal and heretofore unseen view of the history of the hospice movement. This film offers viewers an intensely moving portrayal of the feelings, goals, and frustrations of four key people whose work and force of personality have been essential to the establishment and growth of the hospice philosophy of care: Dame Cicely Saunders, Florence Wald, Elizabeth K├╝bler-Ross, and Balfour Mount.

The discussion after the film will be led by the following members of Washington Home and Community Hospices staff: Margaret Capurso, Grief Counselor, Sherrel Maison, Clinical Liason and Volunteer Cynthia Swan, Counselor (and former staff of Community Hospice, Grief Counselor).

Reel and Meal has partnered with members of the Washington Home and Community Hospices staff to present this film.
