Beautiful Dying Expo San Diego on November 2

Workshop Topic: End of Life Choices California—Your Life, Your Death, Your Choice

Workshop Presenter:  Lynne Calkins, NP

The greatest Gift you can give your family and friends is to let them know how you would want to be cared for if you were unconscious and couldn’t speak for yourself.  This is called Advance Care Planning.  It is a valuable road map for your loved ones that decreases the burden on them.

The Elephant in the Room and experts from End of Life Choices California will be on hand to help you begin the Conversation and complete an Advance Directive.  We will tell you about all legal choices for end of life and update you on California’s End of Life Option Act — in effect for the past 3 years.
You will be given concrete ideas for how to talk to your doctor and loved ones. When you leave this workshop you will feel lighter, better prepared, and much more confident about death, dying and living.
Workshop time and place:
Room 14A from 12:00 – 1:00 PM

Our Mission

End of Life Choices California’s mission is to provide Californians the information and support to successfully navigate their legal end-of-life options.  Relevant topics include Advance Care Planning; the California End of Life Option Act (ELOA)eligibility requirements for Medical Aid in Dying (MAiD); and Voluntarily Stopping Eating and Drinking (VSED)–a legal option in all 50 states. Our volunteers are very knowledgeable about both hospice and palliative care and can explain the differences between the two services.
