January 8 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
A film about choices and better endings.
The Cathedral City Senior Center is hosting this documentary and discussion about California’s new end of life options act as part of its “Second Tuesday” presentations.
According to the presenters whether you’re 18 or 80 it’s important to plan ahead while you’re of sound mind, good health and have the ability to do so. This 30-minute heartfelt documentary captures the voices and experiences of people finding comfort through making personal choices about death and dying. The interviews and stories reveal the complexities of end-of-life issues in today’s healthcare environment and the many pathways to a better ending. An open discussion will follow the presentation.
The program and discussion will be lead by Pamela K. Steele, PhD who is an educational psychologist, certified mediator, healthcare advocate and healthcare navigator.
According to the presenters:
Do you know?
- That 75% of people close to dying are unable to speak for themselves?
- What type of medical care or intervention you want under what circumstances?
- Whom you want to speak for you if you can’t do so for yourself?
The presenters ask:
Why is this important?
- Envision a peaceful/meaningful ending. Avoid unnecessary suffering.
- Relieve loved ones of burdensome decision-making.
- Help guide your caregivers and medical team.
