BREVARD COUNTY • MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA – Solaris Senior Living Merritt Island is holding a series of educational lectures this spring rich in information, insight and tips for good health.
The lectures, which are free and open to the public, will begin with a presentation on Tuesday, March 6 at 4:30 p.m. about palliative care and end-of-life care assistance.

Speaker Andy Robinson, LPN with St. Francis Pathways, will explain how to form a support network, how palliative care eases the strain on caregivers and patients and more.
“Families often ask how end-of-life care is covered financially, and how often patients are seen by a palliative specialist. I look forward to addressing all of that at Tuesday’s seminar,” Robinson said.
