Dying At Home: How To Plan & Prepare for a Home Death

Wednesday, October 30

12:30pm-2:00pm

Preparation around death & dying at home can be challenging & complex. Join our mindful panel of end-of-life experts as they share perspectives, options & resources supporting the home death option.

In times past, it was not unusual to die in a place that was both comforting and familiar: Home.

Nowadays, we are faced with increased medical interventions and scenarios. Conversations & planning around death and dying in general can feel challenging and complex. Medical, physical, emotional, physical, legal, & spiritual issues may become heightened and overwhelming. However, with the right support and plans we still have the opportunity to prepare for a good death, and in the setting of our choice. Education and care can assist in better outcomes overall, and support the grieving process of both the dying and the living.

Join our mindful panel of healthcare-based, end-of-life experts who will share perspectives, communication tools, laws, resources and funeral options for home deaths. There will be time allotted for Q & A.
