End of Life Choices New York seeks to expand choice at the end of life, respecting every individual’s wishes, and striving for the best possible quality of life and a peaceful death. Everyone should have the right to die, if possible, in a way that she or he decides and controls, consistent with her or his values and beliefs. Yet, in New York State, many people die protracted deaths with terrible suffering. We have been at the forefront of these issues in New York, working to achieve better care and more choices for the dying. We engage in a variety of educational and outreach efforts to inform the public about end of life options. We counsel individuals and families who are facing the end of life or wish to plan ahead. We aggressively pursue legal reforms to improve palliative care, enable advance planning, and increase options at the end of life (including medial aid in dying).
