The RoseRock hospice team is proud to be a friend and partner to Clarehouse, Tulsa’s unique and extraordinary end-of-life residence. Since 2001 Clarehouse has provided a home and short term round-the-clock care to terminally ill people. Clarehouse is funded entirely by charitable giving. Clarehouse residents must be enrolled in a local hospice program, like RoseRock. When a RoseRock patient goes to Clarehouse, our team continues to provide the full range of hospice services supplemented by Clarehouse’s nonstop practical care.
In May, Clarehouse continues its tradition of significant service by offering the Peace of Mind Project, three evening events aimed at educating and empowering our community to make vital, timely decisions to improve decision-making at the end of life. The Peace of Mind Project, 6 p.m. on May 7, 14 and 21, will promote education about last wills, trusts, memorial service pre-planning and Oklahoma’s Advance Directive for Healthcare, a legal document that enables you to inform physicians and others of your wishes regarding medical treatment when the time comes that you cannot make such decisions yourself. Information about the Oklahoma Advance Directive is also available by contacting RoseRock.
RoseRock Hospice Supports Good Care Planning
A good plan can ensure that an individual’s wishes are followed as he or she approaches the end-of-life. Our RoseRock social workers are expert at helping patients and families sort through the many fundamental decisions that arise when someone we love is very sick. An educational program like the one Clarehouse is planning is invaluable; it can prepare you with information before anyone in your family is faced with profound illness.
According to Kelley Scott, RN, CHPN, Executive Director and Founder of Clarehouse, her team is proud to devote its resources to supporting better end-of-life planning.
“We believe education is a growing facet of our mission,” Kelley said. “We are pleased to host this project that gives people critical information to prepare and plan for difficult times.”
The Peace of Mind Project will feature top local experts in estate planning, eldercare management, end-of-life care and grief. All sessions are free. More information is available at Clarehouse.
