Last Acts of Kindness: Care and Compassion at the End of Life

This 3-part online workshop is designed for anyone who wishes to foster confidence and resiliency as we care for our friends, ourselves, our families, and our community at the end of life. It is appropriate for professional and family caregivers, as well as for “care-receivers.”

We all will be in positions to be “end of life doulas” at some time, assisting friends and loved ones in the dying process. This workshop will prepare us to show up at the bedsides of the dying, using the tenets of palliative care: to help relieve suffering physically, emotionally, spiritually, psychologically.

The course will be held on three Thursdays, from 10:00 am - 12:00 noon: 

  • May 28
  • June 4th
  • June 11th

Workshop leaders:

  • Redwing Keyssar, RN, Author, Director of Patient and Caregiver Education at the MERI CENTER
  • Ladybird Morgan, RN, MSW, Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Humane Prison Hospice Project

Sliding scale donation: $25 - $100

Enrollment is limited to 20 participants. Details and registration

This workshop is a collaboration between Commonweal and the MERI Center for Education in Palliative Care at UCSF/Mt Zion.
