Quarterly Education Meeting with Author Ira Baumgarten

September 20, 2021 Quarterly Education Meeting Maine Hospice Council is excited to welcome Author Ira Baumgarten to present at the next quarterly meeting event. Ira and his family have experienced death and loss in their own lives. The support of hospice has helped them process the fear and grief so they could be present in their loved ones' end-of-life journey.

As part of this healing process, Ira wrote the book A Night on Buddy's Bench: An End of Life Story, to help initiate end-of-life conversations that can comfort both the living and the dying.

In collaboration with the Hospice and Palliative Care Association of New York State, Ira wrote a follow-up book entitled:
A Pilgram's Way through Grief-A Guide to a Night on Buddy's Bench.
These books explore the beauty and brevity of life and have been used by hospice staff and volunteers nationally and internationally in their work with families and individuals.
Please join us on September 20, 2021 from 9:00AM to 12:00PM for our next quarterly education meeting with Author Ira Baumgarten!
