The Doe Allen Memorial Workshop: Thoughtful Endings
Planning and preparing for the end of life.
Saturday, May 20 8:30am – 3:30pm, Channing Hall
How can we make the end of life a little easier for ourselves and our loved ones left behind? Focusing on the conversations and decisions that lead to a thoughtful end of life, we’ll address not only what you leave behind, but how you live the last days of your life.
Whether raising young children and contemplating their named guardians, at mid life and career and find yourself without medical directives or wills, or at retirement age or older and pondering the legacy you want to leave, this workshop will address how to be best prepared at all stages of life’s journey.
Highlights of the day include:
Putting your Affairs in Order: Understanding the legal, medical and financial aspects of end of life planning
Having “THE” Conversation: Talking with loved ones about end of life wishes
Understanding Hospice and Palliative Care
What Happens After We Die: The service, cremation vs burial, obituaries, memorial garden & ways of remembering loved ones
Leaving a Legacy: Gifts to church, charities, organizations, scholarships
