Peace Club presentation on: The Value of Advance Care Planning and an Overview of End-of-Life Options

Linda Rowe, volunteer with End of Life Choices California, will outline the value of Advance Care Planning, a process that enables individuals to make plans about their future health care choices and is applicable to adults at all stages of life.  

A review of the legal end-of-life options in California will include discontinuing or declining medical treatments, hospice and palliative care, and voluntarily stopping eating and drinking (VSED).  Additional detail will be provided about California’s End of Life Option Act in effect since 2016, a law that is also referred to as Medical Aid in Dying (MAiD) or Death with Dignity. There will be ample time for questions and discussion at the end of the presentation.

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 Voluntary 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.
