A Good Ending: Preparing for end of life issues for patients and caregivers

LIBRARY
2 pM – 3 Pm 

 

Synopsis

“A good death requires more than practical caring. Relationships need completing and sometimes mending, faith needs nurturing, stories need telling. There is work to be done... There are goals to fulfil... There is saying goodbye and preparing myself spiritually.”

- Rob Moll, The Art of Dying

 

Join us for a panel discussion about various practical, legal and emotional considerations for a good ending for ourselves and the people we leave behind as we complete the last chapter of our journey here on earth.
