Being prepared by taking care of administrative details that surround illness and the end of life eases the load at a time when you might be unable to communicate your desires and your family is emotionally less able to make decisions. This workshop is for everybody regardless of what stage of life you may be in right now.
January 13, Part I: After an introduction so some of the Jewish values surrounding the end of life and some of the medical circumstances that arise, we will look at the legal documents that direct medical decision making - relieving family members from having to make these difficult choices. (Advanced Directives, Medical/Physicians Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment, Powers of Attorney for Health Care)
April 21, Part II: Managing our legacy. What stuff do we leave behind and how do we decide and direct who is to receive it in a manner that is consistent with our values? What else, besides stuff, do we want to leave? We'll explore the tradition of writing ethical wills and get some tools to begin creating one.
