“When Mom Chooses to Die” presented by Hemlock Society of San Diego

Topic: End of Life Choices California

Presenter: Judith Schnack, MSN, RN, FNP
Client Advocate Volunteer with End of Life Choices California

Please join the Hemlock Society to hear from family members and friends who witnessed planned deaths under California’s End of Life Option Act. No one is obligated to use the prescription once you receive it. Hear from the wife of a man who had the prescription and was comforted by it, but in the end did not use it.  Judy Schnack, a volunteer with End of Life Choices California will also speak.

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.
