Hoy to present hospice seminar


By Anna Skinner



Dr. Bill Hoy of Baylor University in Waco, Texas, will visit Indianapolis to present two seminars on hospice care for Flanner and Buchanan on March 10.

“I think it’s important that we at Flanner and Buchanan give professionals working in hospice settings or who are lay leaders in the church resources to deal with working with families on end of life issues,” Maureen Lindley, vice president of marketing for Flanner and Buchanan, said.

“Challenges at the End-Of-Life Workshop: Caring for Patients and Their Families,” is targeted towards social workers, hospice workers and church members who help care for families dealing with end-of-life issues. The seminars are free to attend, with the morning session from 9 to 11 a.m. and the afternoon session from 1 to 3 p.m.

Hoy has not presented this seminar to Flanner and Buchanan before, although he does write a monthly newsletter that Lindley sends out to local hospices.

Two Continuing Education Credits will be offered to social workers and funeral directors for attending the workshop seminar.

“Dr. Hoy is a clinical professor of medical humanities at Baylor University, and he has a background in hospice,” Lindley said. “A lot of the people attending these sessions are hospice workers. He has also served as a pastor.”

Flanner and Buchanan hosts multiple seminars throughout the year, although Lindley said this one is different as Hoy is recognized as a national speaker.

“We are excited to be able to provide a much needed resource to the professionals in Indianapolis who work with families at the end of life,” she said.

The seminar will take place at Floral Park, 425 Holt Rd., Indianapolis. To register, visit flannerbuchanan.com.
