Wednesday, October 30
This workshop will use the Compassion and Choices resource, My End of Life Decisions: An Advance Planning Guide and Toolkit, to discuss the values, beliefs, and wishes that form the basis for your end of life choices, and how to share them with your loved ones, friends and doctor.
We will then review a series of necessary documents that ensure your wishes will be known and carried out. These include an Advance Directive for Health Care, Dementia Provision, Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST), and Residential Agreement with Assisted Living Facility.
This session will be led by Dr. Dennis Pocekay, a Compassion & Choices volunteer who does presentations on issues related to the end of life.
