End of Life: What are your wishes?
What are the wishes of your loved ones?
Wednesday, February 12, 2:00 pm
Let’s get familiar with the kind of planning that is helpful (not morbid) and is an act of love. This is an interactive presentation on how to get comfortable talking about the uncomfortable. You will leave with an understanding of how to initiate and the importance of initiating difficult conversations. This includes how best to communicate when others may not want to listen. We think about and plan for many things in our lives, i.e. what to make for dinner (or where to go for dinner), weddings, vacations, surgery and rehab, retirement savings… this is simply another thing to think about.
This is the third program in the series of crucial conversations presented by Laura L. Barry. Laura is the Hospice Care Transition Liaison with the Visiting Nurses Association of Philadelphia.
The program will be held in the MacColl Room on the 2nd Floor of the First Presbyterian Church, 201 South 21st Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103. The entrance is on 21st Street. There is an elevator for handicapped accessibility. Please let us know in advance if this is needed.
This program is free of charge for Penn’s Village members, volunteers and donors. Guests are welcome to attend up to three programs before being required to join and/or volunteer with Penn’s Village. If you attend as a guest, there is a $10 fee for each program.
