The Palliative Players of Hospice Volunteers of Waldo County will present the improv theater production “End Stage.”
Through unscripted role playing, the performers act out possible end of life scenarios and conversations in families challenged by serious illness. The performances explore decisions and wishes that arise in a health care crisis, and offer suggestions for more effective conversations about end of life.
The free, public event is part of the University of Maine’s AgingME (GWEP) Lunch and Learn series. The Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program (GWEP) is sponsored by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The five-year initiative seeks to improve health outcomes for older adults.
