Lives Well Lived Screening for Hospice Volunteers

May 15th, 2018

In recognition of National Volunteer Month (April), hospice volunteers from agencies Hospice of San Luis Obispo County (Hospice SLO County), Wilshire Hospice and Central Coast Hospice were invited to a private screening of the documentary Lives Well Lived. This screening was made possible by these three hospice organizations and the Palm Theatre, as well as the generous support of the filmmaker of the documentary, Sky Bergman.

Lives Well Lived celebrates the wit and wisdom of 40 adults who are 75 to 100 years old and living their lives to the fullest, and it is now being screened across the nation. Encompassing over 3,000 years of experience, the subjects of the documentary share their secrets and insights to living a meaningful life.

This private screening offered the unique opportunity for all three hospice organizations to thank our volunteers for their generous support. The documentary resonated with our volunteers, who generously donate their time to support our clients who are facing a life-limiting illness, and led to many thoughtful discussions after the film ended.
