Newsletter March 2019

Dear Readers,

The in-patient department of Johannes-Hospiz will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year in August. In order to do this special event in style, we have been busy with a lot of planning which shall give expression to the great variety and vividness of our hospice work. This Newsletter with its contributions reflects three priorities: the meaning of memory, of pause, reflection and exchange, and of development.

Andreas Stähli
