Topic: HOSPICE: Ignore the label. Enjoy the services
Hospice and Palliative Care are often riddled with myths and misunderstandings. Join Chaya Parkoff, LCSW for an informative and enjoyable presentation that will open your eyes to what Hospice and Palliative Care really are, and how older adults and their families can benefit from them, sooner rather than later.

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a specialization in older adulthood and expertise in hospice and palliative care, Chaya is passionate about enhancing the physical and emotional well-being of her clients so they can live life to the fullest. Chaya is also a Medical Social Worker at Elevation Hospice of Colorado, where she cares for patients  and their families from wherever they call home, and mentors and supervises MSW interns.
