'Soul Support’-Caring for Those at the End of the Road
Monday, March 19, 2018


The author of “Soul Support: Providing Spiritual Support at Life’s End” will offer a free presentation at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 20, at Ketchum’s Community Library.

Joan P. Maxwell will draw on her experiences as a hospital chaplain in Washington, show ways to foster hope and peace through the dying process.

Her presentations are said to be passionate and poetic, often infused with humor.

“I have been privileged to be present with hundreds of people as they neared death. Drawing from what they taught me, I developed this talk to help others who want to support a loved one who is dying,” said Maxwell.

The presentation will address such questions as: What do dying people want from us? What is helpful and what gets in their way? What are some of the little known things that occur as the final curtain call draws near?

“This talk offers answers to these vital questions,” she added.

Maxwell received a Master of Theological Studies from Wesley Theological Seminary and was endorsed as a hospital chaplain by the Episcopal Church.

The program is presented in partnership with Hospice of the Wood River Valley, St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation and St. Thomas Episcopal Church.
