Educational Seminars

Calvert Hospice is dedicated to being an educational resource to our community, to providing seminars that address the questions and concerns we have about living well through the end of life. We understand the need we all have to be able to obtain information that will help us make the best decisions possible for ourselves and our families. This is particularly true when it comes to planning out the later years of our lives, to coping with complex illnesses, and to choosing specialized care at  the end-of-life. Our seminars focus on the quality of life, on the choices and options we have as we create the moments and memories that matter most to us and to our loved ones. All of our seminars are open and free of charge to anyone interested. Please register to attend one or more of our seminars either by calling our office at the number below or clicking on the “Register” button below the seminar you are interested in attending.

Seating is limited, so register early for seminars.

All classes in 2019 will be held at SpringHill Suites in Prince Frederick located at 75 Sherry Lane.
