Learn how to start planning and documenting your wishes through Advance Directives, and how to have conversations with those close to you about what quality of life means to you.
Whether end of life comes naturally, as the result of an accident, or the final chapter of a disease, planning ahead can make things easier. It gives you the chance to consider your values about quality of life before confronting life and death decisions. It helps you understand in advance what measures you would or would not want taken depending on the severity of your illness or injury. And most importantly, it gives you the chance to die on your terms, by sharing your end-of-life wishes with medical professionals, loved ones and people who support you.
Presented by Worry-Free Wednesdays, this workshop will give you guidance on where to start planning and documenting your wishes through Advance Directives and how to have conversations with those close to you about what quality of life means to you. We will also take a deep dive into your individual questions and concerns, provide helpful planning tips and guide you to free and useful resources online.
Understanding the helpful documents and actions that can be taken prior to a medical emergency or end-of-life that allows individuals and their loved ones to avoid confusion and/or suffering when they are not educated and face life and death decisions.
