Navigating Grief After Medical Aid in Dying: Online Bereavement Group

Losing someone we love is always painful: losing someone who has used Medical Aid in Dying is a different and special journey.

NOTE: this is the first in a series of four or more sessions. The series may be repeated–see contact info below.

If you are grieving for a loved one who used medical aid in dying, or know someone who is, this private group will provide a safe, secure space to explore the special issues that medical aid in dying can bring up. In coordination with EOLCCA, this group will be facilitated by Jim Reiser, LMFT, the Bereavement Coordinator of HNC. He holds a MFT from Chapman University and BA in psychology from CSUSM, and has been doing this caring work for 11 years.
There is no charge to attend these group sessions. Anyone interested in participating must email LCalkins@endoflifechoicesca.org, or call EOLCCA at 760.636.8009 and ask about the Bereavement Group.

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.
