Maintaining Resilience at the End of Life

What is resilience and what factors help us to remain resilient when we face the end of life? These questions will be explored by UUCR member Dr. Laura Shay, a hospice chaplain, as she shares her insights and experiences working in end-of-life care.
Chaplain Shay is a board certified hospice and hospital chaplain. She currently works for Montgomery Hospice and MedStar Montgomery Medical Center. After a thirty-year career in nursing in the Navy and Public Health Service, she used her GI Bill to pursue a career in Healthcare Chaplaincy. She is a graduate of Wesley Theological Seminary and has been a member of UUCR since 2018.
The UUCR Choir will sing. Justin Furnia, piano.
First Fifteen—Three to four Sundays a month, all ages* join in worship in the Sanctuary for the “First Fifteen” minutes, after which those in K through 5th grade follow their teachers to their classrooms. Parents of K through 3rd grade are asked to sign their children out from classes ten minutes after the end of worship; children in 4th grade and up will be dismissed to find their parents at the end of class. *Nursery care for infants—4-year-olds is available during the entire service in Building 3, Room 33.
