Speakers’ Bureau

The Oceanside Hospice Society’s Speakers’ Bureau is a team of trained volunteers which offers talks, information and other services to community groups (e.g., business staff, service clubs, chambers of commerce, churches, and other organizations).

Presentations can be tailored to meet your available time, interest level and number of participants. Lunch and learn sessions are one suggested opportunity for business groups.

There is no charge for these services.

Currently we are prepared to offer:

An Introduction to the Oceanside Hospice Society

Learn about the purpose, goals, need for and the array of services at Oceanside Hospice Society. This talk can vary from a quick informal 10 minute talk to an extended PowerPoint presentation, depending upon the time you have available.

Advance Care Planning

This 30 minute PowerPoint presentation introduces participants to the need for and main concepts involved with creating an Advance Care Plan. This presentation can also include the showing of the 60 minute award-winning documentary “Consider the Conversation.”

Advance Care Planning Form Completion 

Following the forms found in the “My Voice – Advance Care Planning Guide,” volunteers assist individuals or couples in completing or reviewing the forms. This service usually takes 1 hour.

Planned Giving 

Representatives of Oceanside Hospice Society Speakers’ Bureau will provide an outline of Planned Giving opportunities for those individuals or groups interested in supporting the programs and services of hospice in Oceanside, now and in the future.
