HEAL Group

Heal GroupThe H.E.A.L. grief support group meets weekly at Hospice Maui in Wailuku and is free of charge. The group provides an opportunity to share your experiences and feelings regarding the death of your loved one and to listen to and learn from others. Participants do not have to have been part of Hospice, but do need to have experienced the death of a loved one in the last 3 years. Participants share about the death of their loved one, how their grief is progressing, what has worked to help them, what challenges they are facing etc. We all grieve differently. Many people don’t feel the need of a support group until long after the death of a loved one. Come whenever you are ready, whether it is soon after your loved one’s death, or much later.

Meeting LOCATION

Being Mortal – Free Screening and Discussion @ Hospice Maui
May 18 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Medicine and What Matters in the End

We see a growing need in education and awareness building around topics regarding end of life. Even doctors are often uncomfortable discussing patients’ anxieties about death, leading to a fall back on false hopes and treatments that are actually shortening lives instead of improving them.

This public awareness campaign, using PBS’s FRONTLINE film, “Being Mortal”, on the importance of talking about end-of-life preferences and goals with loved ones and medical professionals will educate audiences and encourage people to take concrete steps to identify and communicate their wishes for end-of-life care.

Join us for a free screening and discussion of the PBS Frontline documentary Being Mortal. Based on the best-selling book by Dr. Atul Gawande, this film explores the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness and their relationships with the doctors, nurses and family members.
