Overview:

The end of life is inevitable for each and every one of us. As we are born and grow, we inherit and develop different values and beliefs as to how matters regarding the end of life should be handled. Though this is true, this conversation can quickly become a sensitive and “taboo” topic to discuss among family and close friends. Therefore, when the time comes and decisions must be made and executed, family and friends are left wondering what the values and beliefs of their loved ones might be. They may even, at times, create their loved one’s values and beliefs based on their own. In this entertaining and informative event, participants will learn through acting how our patients and/or loved ones may feel at the end of life when they are unable to express themselves. Actress, Judith Gantly, offers a unique and thought-provoking performance that looks at the patient and caregiver journey through the dying process. This information will continue to be applied as Scott Zucker, JD, educates on Ethical Wills. Mr. Zucker will walk participants through the basics of an ethical will and how it may help a patient cope with end-of-life issues. In this portion of the powerful presentation, participants will learn the definition and components of an ethical will as well as how to write one of their own. Mr. Zucker will use information, hands-on experiences, and a documentary to present this invaluable information.
