Free Virtual Class: Navigating End of Life Care & Planning
featuring Angelique Britt
Licensed Hospice Nurse
Wednesday, June 2, 2021 • 7:00pm – 8:30pm
Preparing for the process of death and dying is as vital as the preparations we make for pregnancy and birth. At our June 2nd workshop, hospice nurse Angelique Britt will walk you through the Medicare Hospice benefit—what is and is not included, as well as share some of the common challenges she sees families face when planning end of life care for themselves or a loved one.
Angelique will offer insight and guidance through the end-of-life process from start to finish, as well as answer any questions you may have about hospice, caregiving or end-of-life itself. Her years of hospice nursing have taught her many lessons and she looks forward to sharing some of them with you in the hope they will help you in some way along your own journey.
ABOUT ANGELIQUE BRITT
Angelique Britt is a registered nurse and clinical herbalist living in Franklin County. She graduated from UMass with a BSN in 2003. Inspired by her experience with end-of-life care while working on the White Mountain Apache Reservation, she returned home to the valley to continue her nursing career working in oncology and hospice, which she has now done for over 16 years. She brings ample amounts of personal experience assisting in the care of those with life-limiting illnesses and seeks to offer guidance around end-of-life decision-making based on challenges she has witnessed and others face at this critical time.
Also passionate about integrative health care, Angelique's time with Clearpath School of Herbal Medicine has inspired her to continue her own education. She will be pursuing a Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine with the New England School of Acupuncture beginning in the fall of 2021. Her aim is to ultimately blend her skill sets. She seeks to offer an integrative approach to those in need—expanding her net of services to include both helping others live their best and most vital lives as well as to die with the most peace and dignity possible. When not working in nursing, seeing clients or preparing for school, she is a voracious reader and enjoys working the soil of her own gardens, as well as teaching her children all about our common and abundant plant allies.
