• Envision a peaceful/meaningful ending. Avoid unnecessary suffering.

My journey into this work has evolved over many years - decades, really. Many strands -- both professionally and personally - have woven together over time to inform, heal, and motivate me, instinctively preparing me for this work.

Future Care Preferences Workshops

Future Care Preferences Workshops 

A place to explore end-of-life options and create a healthcare plan that reflects your personal desires. There is no better gift for yourself and your loved ones than to answer some questions and make some plans now while you are physically and mentally capable, and while you are not in crisis.

Ask Yourself:

  • Who will be my advocate if I am unable to speak for myself?
  • What happens if I have an unexpected illness/injury?
  • What kind of medical treatment do I want ... or not want?
  • How do I start a conversation with my loved ones about my healthcare preferences?

Overview of Workshop Topics:

  • Complete an Advance Directive - Make choices appropriate for you.
  • Learn about End-of-life Healthcare - Learn medical terminology and the complexities inside the healthcare system.
