Hospice Care was main topic at Rotary Club Meeting Tuesday

Ville Platte Rotary Club Meeting February 18, 2020 The Ville Platte Rotary Club today (Tuesday) heard from Guest Speaker Mitch Pellorin with Louisiana Hospice and Palliative Care of Opelousas. Pellorin, a life-long resident of Ville Platte, explained that hospice care is available to patients with illnesses who can no longer benefit from curative treatment and usually have a life expectancy of six months or less as determined by a physician. Hospice focuses on patient and family centered care that addresses the physical, spiritual, emotional and practical needs of the patient. Services can be provided in the home, nursing home or assisted living facility and is usually covered by Medicare. He was introduced by Rotary Club Member Peter Strawitz.
