The Terraces of Los Altos

Topic: In this compassionate and candid Zoom discussion, gerontologist Sally Duplantier and pharmacist Susan Gess, volunteer and member of the Advisory Council of End of Life Choices California, will share advanced care planning documents and end-of-life medical care options. This will include a review of the End of Life Option Act also known as Medical Aid in Dying (MAiD), which has been in effect in California since 2016.

We will also share planning resources available through the non-profit, End of Life Choices California (EOLCCA). You will walk away with a better understanding of options to help you and your loved ones manage your care, comfort, and wishes at end-of-life.

Virtual Presentation limited to Residents of the Terraces of Los Altos

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.
