Many of us realize that we should plan ahead to address possible health care crises or other events, but for various reasons, we put it off. Like the proverbial “elephant in the room,” we just pretend it’s not there.
If you or someone you love falls into this category, plan to attend this hour-long workshop with Lynne Calkins, a Founding Director of End of Life Choices California (EOLCCA). Are You Good To Go? End-of-Life Planning Made Easy. Thinking about this topic can be really scary; this will be a safe, fascinating and interactive workshop. You’ll discover the importance of opening up conversations with your spouse, partner, parents, grandparents or your adult children about the value and gift of advance planning for end of life. All end-of-life choices available in California, including medical aid in dying will be explored.
This is an in-service event for AccentCare social workers, RNs, LPNs, support and administrative staffs and others.
Representatives from EOLCCA will provide the latest information on the services provided by this organization whose goal is to help ensure that people are able to receive the information and support they need to advocate for and experience the death they wish. Key topics will include recent changes to the California End of Life Option Act; legal options one has to make an informed decision at the end of life–including, but not limited to, medical aid in dying (MAiD); and seeking opportunities to collaborate with hospice on supporting those nearing the end of life to achieve the type of death they desire.
