Panel on compassionate communication slated at Mayo

BANGOR, MaineA panel discussion focusing on compassionate communication is being held from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 16, at Mayo Hospital Resource Center, and is open to all community members who are interested in learning how to better communicate and support those with serious illness, bereavement, or other traumatic life events.

Pine Tree Hospice is providing this program, in collaboration with Eastern Area Agency on Aging and with funding from the United Way of Eastern Maine. Dessert refreshments will be provided.

With compassionate communication being the focus, this program will discuss how to support a friend or family member who is seriously ill or dying when the natural human reaction is to feel awkward and upset. The panel discussion will answer the question, “What do I say when those I care about are faced with difficult life events?”
