Lavender Seniors of the East Bay

Oakland CA CA, United States

Many of us have watched our parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, other family members and friends face difficult “end of life” decisions. Some of them have experienced protracted bouts of illness (e.g., Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Cancer, Stroke, Heart, Kidney or Liver Disease); others have had a sudden death while shoveling snow or a peaceful death in their sleep. And there are examples of everything in between. Though we may know intellectually that all of us will pass on one day, none of us knows how or when. Californians approaching the end of life – no matter how old they are – now have some options to consider.
