Vision: Dignity, Security and Peace at Life’s End
End of life issues are unique and demand special preparation. For wishes to be realized and values to be respected, we strive to make discussions about these issues a normal conversation within our community. Others can honor our wishes when we contemplate and share with loved ones the choices one needs to make by:
- Preparing an advance care plan for health care choices and authorizing an individual to make those choices if we are unable to speak for ourselves.
- Organizing our legal, financial, and personal property documents, with any needed plans for final affairs.
- Documenting our personal desires for funeral service, body disposition and memorial to relieve loved ones at a time of grief.
Creating a gift for those we love by combining into one guidebook these important documents for convenient accessibility in answering difficult questions at life’s end.
