Free Healthy Living Workshops
Your Life ~ Your Wishes: Advance Directives
Wednesday, June 19
Edmonds Library, Conference Room (650 Main St., Edmonds)
While most Americans say they would prefer to live through the end of their lives at home, surrounded by friends and family, the reality is the exact opposite. This workshop is designed to educate people and stimulate ongoing conversations about health care decisions at the end of life. Presenters will help participants explore these questions: 1) Who will be your voice if you are unable to speak? 2) What life-sustaining treatments do you want? 3) What values shape your choices for treatment? 4) What documents make your choices known to others? 5) What options & alternative choices are there for burial? This is a free community class about how to live well at the end of life by making choices now on health care options. Each participant will receive helpful handouts that they can take home to discuss and share with loved ones and physicians.
The Edmonds Senior Center is located south of the ferry on the Edmonds waterfront at 220 Railroad Ave. Office is open from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday – Friday. Call 425-744-5555 to join or volunteer. Check out the website for the latest programs at www.edmondssc.org.
