Funeral alliance talk on hospice care

"What to Ask When You Consider a Hospice" will be the major topic at the 61st annual conference of the Funeral Consumers Alliance of San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties to be held from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, April 21, at the Community Room of the Los Altos Library, 13 S. San Antonio Road in Los Altos.

Vince Evans, vice president of patient services at Hospice of the Valley, will be the speaker. Also on the program will be Allan Hutty, regional manager of Cemetery Resales, San Mateo, who will speak on buying cemetery property in the secondary market.

After the talks, the audience will be invited to visit a dozen tables to ask experts about such end-of-life needs as eco-caskets and urns, natural burial, funerals, cremations, and passing on your assets.

The public is invited to attend the free event. Refreshments will be available.
