The April GFWC QuiVive Club meeting was held on Thursday, May 4, 2017 at the home of Cathy Blackstad. Carol Carlson was the Co-hostess.
Karen Braulick is affiliated with Allina Hospice, the largest hospice in Minnesota. The program serves approximately 45 to 50 patients in a 50-mile radius. Hospice helps families and individuals at the end stages of life. A hospice team consists of RNs who are case managers, the patient’s primary doctor, home health aides, a chaplain, a hospice doctor, and volunteers who might sit with a patient, run errands, or do light housekeeping.
A business meeting was held after Karen spoke:
