Categories : WEBINARS

Are you End of Life Ready?

When living with chronic condition like PD, the focus is on living life to the fullest and maintaining your quality of life for as long as you can.  Part of ensuring you can live every day to your fullest, is planning ahead for end-of-life so when the end comes, your values about death and dying are honored and protected by those responsible for your care.

Please join us as we welcome our friends at End of Life Washington for a 60-minute presentation that will teach you how to clearly communicate your wishes in a set of Advance Directives, choose a Health Care Agent to speak on your behalf if you cannot, and understand what end-of-life options are available including Death with Dignity (Medical Aid in Dying) and VSED.

After attending this session, you should feel prepared to communicate and share your end-of-life wishes with those caring for you, and closest to you.

PRESENTER:

Our volunteer presenter will be Wendy, from End of Life Washington.  She is currently leading their education and awareness program called End of Life Ready.  She became involved with the organization after watching several family members and close friends suffer by not having the right documents and support team in place to honor their end of life wishes.   Through this experience she drew on her 25 year career in marketing management to co-develop the End of Life Ready Campaign which aims to educate a quarter of a million citizens in the Northwest be better prepared at end-of-life or in the event of a health-care crisis.  Wendy is a native of Washington State.
