MAKING END OF LIFE DECISIONS. THE FIRST IN A MONTHLY SERIES. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 29 9am-2pm.

The Church of St. Stanislaus will begin a series of monthly discussions about making end of life decisions. Topics offered will include:  advance care directives, hospice, organ donation, funeral planning, caregiving, moving out of your home, long term care insurance, and wills.

We think these topics will be of interest for all ages.  An older person’s concern might be, “Where do I want to spend the last years of my life if I’m no longer able to live in my own home?”  A younger person might wonder, “If I die, who will be responsible for my minor children, my disabled family member, or my elderly parents?” Others might worry about, “ How do I talk with my parents about their end of life wishes?”

The series will begin with a workshop about Advance Care Planning.  Pat Tommet, an Advance Care Planning Facilitator, retired nurse, and member of the Church of St. Stanislaus will conduct the Workshop on Advance Care Planning on Saturday, February 29th from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm in the Library at the Parish Center.  A light lunch will be served.
