Piedmont/Triad, NC – Trellis Supportive Care (formerly Hospice & Palliative CareCenter) is excited to announce the 5th annual Living Your Best Life Speaker Series scheduled for September 30, 2020 in Winston-Salem. This year’s event features Mitch Albom – a best-selling author, screenwriter, playwright and nationally-syndicated columnist. The author of seven #1 New York Times bestsellers, his books have collectively sold more than 40 million copies in 47 languages worldwide. Tuesdays With Morrie, which spent four straight years atop the New York Times list, is now the bestselling memoir of all time. Four of Albom’s books, including Morrie, The Five People You Meet In Heaven, For One More Day and Have A Little Faith, have been made into highly acclaimed TV movies. Oprah Winfrey produced “Tuesdays With Morrie,” which claimed four Emmy awards including a best actor nod for Jack Lemmon in the lead role.
Albom has founded nine charities in Detroit, and operates the Have Faith Haiti orphanage in Port au Prince, Haiti, which he visits monthly. He lives with his wife, Janine, in metropolitan Detroit.
Trellis Supportive Care (formerly Hospice & Palliative CareCenter) was the first hospice in the state of North Carolina. Since 1979, hospice care has been the cornerstone of the organization’s care; however, over the years, new and expanded programs have been introduced. These programs include grief counseling and advance care planning — both free of charge — for anyone in the community, as well as expanded palliative care services designed to meet the needs of patients earlier in the disease process. In 1998 the Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home was opened, providing around-the-clock care to patients and families needing short-term inpatient care or respite care.
The Trellis Supportive Care staff is comprised of specially trained professionals who work as a team to help patients and their families live fully and comfortably, with hope — even during life’s most challenging time.
