CONNECTIONS AREA AGENCY ON AGING PRESENTS: 

A TRUE HELP - HOSPICE AND PALLIATIVE CARE

This session will burst the bubbles of misconception about hospice and palliative care. Hospice and palliative care can bring in support- ive services for not only the patient but also for the entire family support system. Hospice of Siouxland will join us to answer questions about pain control and end-of-life services. You will also be given tools to think about and communicate with your loved ones about what you want during a medical crisis or during your final days.

Location: Dr. Robert H. Kiser Building, Room A113, ACE, Entrance 1

HELLO, I CAN HEAR YOU NOW

Do you or someone you know have a hearing loss? Relay Iowa and Telecommunications Access Iowa (TAI) have options that can help people who have a hearing loss communicate on the telephone. Relay Iowa has services such as Captioned Telephone which allows people to read what is being said to them on the telephone. The service is available on a landline phone, as well as through internet options or smartphone applications. The service is available 24/7, and there is no cost for the service. TAI helps Iowans get specialized phone equipment for little to no cost. TAI is a program of the Iowa Utilities Board and offers discount vouchers that help pay for 95% of the average cost of this equipment. It is not a low-income program, so many find that they are eligible. During this presentation you will learn how it works, what options are available, and how this program can benefit you!
