End-of-Life Care Options: Your Choice – Your Decision
December 1 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
While this can be a difficult topic to discuss, we all face challenges when it comes knowing what is available regarding end-of-life care for ourselves or a loved one. The key to making decisions about end-of-life care is having knowledge and understanding about choices and options. Part of this discussion is making decisions to address what type of medical treatments a person would like to accept or to refuse. We will talk about options for treatments and how to face challenging conversations with a loved one when determining what matters most, to have quality of life, at or near, the end of life.
