Dying At Home—How To Plan & Prepare for a Home Death: Panel Presentation

Registration/Information: https://dyingathome.eventbrite.com
This is a free training.

In times past, it was not unusual to die in a place that was both comforting and familiar: Home.

Nowadays, we are faced with increased medical interventions and scenarios. Conversations & planning around death and dying in general can feel challenging and complex. Medical, physical, emotional, physical, legal, & spiritual issues may become heightened and overwhelming.

However, with the right support and plans we still have the opportunity to prepare for a good death, and in the setting of our choice. Education and care can assist in better outcomes overall, and support the grieving process of both the dying and the living.

On Wednesday, October 30th, Institute on Aging and Reimagine welcomes a mindful panel of healthcare-based, end-of-life experts who will share perspectives, communication tools, laws, resources and funeral options for home deaths. There will be time allotted for Q & A.

FACILITATOR: Stefanie Elkins, MA, Continuum of Care Coach & Consultant

PANELISTS:

– Karen Morin Green, RN, Founding Director, Vice President of End of Life Choices,- CA

– Stephanie Marquet, MD, Hospice & Palliative Care Physican and Advisor, Compassion & Choices Medical Advocate

– Jill Schock, Clinical Chaplain, End of Life Advocate, Death Doula LA
